Best Way to Strike a Chord

This company hits the right note.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2007

Martin Guitars uses a heap of wood to craft its instruments. Now the Nazareth, Pennsylvania, company–at nearly 175, the country’s oldest guitar maker–has teamed with Greenpeace to ensure, through sustainable logging, that all its fancy fretwork won’t wipe out Alaska’s Sitka spruce. It’s also substituting maple and cedar for the rarer woods used in guitar necks, hitting the right note for the environment.
