Environmental concerns are pervading into every industry now and musicians are getting more options with their equipment as the world changes.
The climate is pretty much an unavoidable topic now, so product alternatives are coming out left, right, and centre to help us feel a little better about our own impact. It’s easy to think that playing music doesn’t have much of a footprint, but every little helps – as they say.
Rombo Picks are a German plectrum manufacturer who have developed a new series of eco-plectrums. The Eco-Black series is made from 100 percent recycled materials in response to growing concerns about the amount of plastic created and wasted around the world.
Rombo claims that their Eco-Black series reduces their CO2 emissions by 90%, decreases energy consumption by 65% and reduces their total resources used by 61%. Each size pick in the series features micronodules for grip and high-mirror polished tips.
The series comes in four thicknesses: 0.45mm, 0.75mm, 1.25mm, and 2mm. Check them out and try out a taster pack with one of all four thicknesses from their website.
