Hardwood Forestry Fund
We work closely with the Hardwood Forestry Fund to do all we can to plant the same species of trees we are using in our guitars. By doing so we are working towards ‘closing the loop’ so that their is always a new tree of the same species for each species of wood we use in our guitars. The Hardwood Forestry Fund also works directly with local agencies to ensure the young saplings we plant are nurtured so that they grow to full maturity.
Carbon Fund makes sure we offset our carbon emissions so that we can ensure that Born Custom Guitars is never impacting the environment negatively. We take into account everything from the energy we use to run our shop down, the energy used to ship materials to our shop and the energy used to ship guitars to your door step.
