Save our planet – water is life!
Did you know, that Arundo Donax, the traditional cane for reeds, is a giant grass growing 4-6-meter high and for that it is taking an enormous amount of water, up to 2000 liters per every single plant? But for reed-making they throw away 90% of the harvest. According to manufactures only 10% remain for the needed quality.
After that another 70-80% are wasted again, cause most artist can’t use all the reeds they bought. Apart from the fact how difficult it is to find a good one!
An incredible wastage!
While global warming increases, water becomes more and more a valuable good. So, what to do?
Just out of the standard packaging of single cane reeds Playnick can produce the double amount of high-quality synthetic reeds. Those have a much longer lifetime and need to be replaced less often. Furthermore, we can recycle our synthetic reeds and give them a second purpose.
Therefore, please collect all withdrawn synthetic reeds carefully, we will be able to process them very soon.
