Steps We're Taking
Cordoba’s newly designed instrument bags are now built with a durable shell made from recycled nylon. This nylon fabric is a blend of post-consumer waste such as microplastics and discarded fishing nets. Fishing nets account for ~50% of the world’s ocean pollution and have become the primary offender. Over 600,000 tons of “ghost nets” are abandoned or discarded at sea every year. Efforts to repurpose these nets into renewable products can help reverse the damage caused.
In 2022, we will introduce ukuleles and mini guitars made with recycled ocean plastics. From there, we will work to integrate the use of recycled plastics across our entire product offering in an effort to minimize our companywide reliance on virgin plastics.
