D’Addario x Taylor Guitars: String Recycling Partners

Taylor now uses D’Addario guitar strings. Among the shared business values that connect the two companies is a commitment to sustainability leadership. Taylor co-founder Bob Taylor and Chief Guitar Designer Andy Powers visited Jim D’Addario at the company’s headquarters to talk about their partnership and their efforts to be more environmentally responsible, including an innovative string recycling program.

If you wish to recycle your strings you can find a local recycling center HERE, or you can sign up for a Players Circle account and ship them directly to D’Addario. You can also drop off your discarded strings at the Taylor Guitars Visitors Center in El Cajon, CA.
