Eco Friendly

D’Addario announced Eco-Comfort, a line of recycled guitar straps. According to D’Addario, it will be the first major strap company to release a line with roughly 90 percent of the strap made from recycled materials. All the Eco-Comfort guitar straps are made from sustainable materials. The strap fabric comes from Repreve, providing high-quality, recycled fibers that are certified, traceable and made with 100-percent recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. The leather ends of the strap are made using eco-leather, or repurposed leather that is grinded down and bound into newly formed leather sheets. The straps are colored using e.dye, offering an environmentally sustainable process for dyeing fabrics. Using the solution-dyed polyester process, e.dye requires no water to dye synthetics. The Eco-Comfort Recycled Guitar Strap line is available in 10 SKUs featuring three basic color straps (black, red and grey) and seven unique jacquard designs. daddario.com
