How does a Stretton Payne Instrument have a Positive Carbon Footprint?

A quick look at the Stretton Payne Woodland. This woodland is managed with the sole purpose of locking up every gram of carbon used in the production of our Stretton Payne musical instruments. Backing track by Chris James Cropp. www.soundcloud.com/cjcropp

 

Stretton Payne instruments are made of wood from sustainable forests around the world but in order to transport the wood and make the guitars it takes energy and leaves a carbon footprint. However the carbon used to produce your instrument is re-absorbed into our 25 acre woodland in the midlands, England, managed by the Stretton Payne team!

This woodland is managed with the sole purpose of locking up every gram of carbon used in the production of our musical instruments. Our woodland has been growing a mixture of broad-leafed trees for the past 15 years to the forestry commission standards and we are committed to maintain the carbon store for the future. This plays a small but important part in ensuring we leave a sustainable planet for musicians of future generations.
