Working to reduce Enlightened Audio’s footprint.
I am very serious about running a business that enhances humanity. I run a fully inclusive studio, but I felt something was still missing. My business wasn’t eco-friendly enough.
Creating an Eco-friendly line of instruments and accessories has been a huge challenge, especially when it comes to bows and cases. Fibreglass and carbon-fibre are extremely common in the manufacturing of cases and bows, including my own violin case. These items cannot be recycled and there are few alternatives available. Products designed for my animal conscious clients are also made of fibreglass and other environmentally unfriendly plastics and compounds. It is important to me that my products protect both the earth and animal welfare.
Despite cuts to my profits, I have removed the Enlightened Audio store. I am working 7 days a week to develop and even manufacture my own friendly line of instruments, cases, bows, rosins, and accessories. In the meantime, fully hand-crafted instruments, customized to your student’s needs are available though I cannot verify their environmental footprint.
- Note4Note scholarships are still available to students but are now funded entirely by donations by generous donors. Since we are not a non-profit, I cannot provide a tax receipt for donations.
- Anyone looking to help us turn the music manufacturing world on its ear, I welcome your support. Every dollar donated or invested will go into the research and development of Eco-friendly products.
- If you have expertise in the areas of biodegradable plastics production or product design and would like to join our board, please feel free to contact me.
- I encourage anyone looking to recycle a violin, bow, or case to ship it to me and I will refurbish it for students in need. The address is to a post office. Should you encounter any difficulties, please feel free to contact me.
