World Environment Day 5 June. CITES and non-tropical wood in guitar-making.

Logo of the United NationsWorld Envirnoment Day 5 June

I dedicate this post to the “World Environment Day” held every 5 June, with Canada being the host country in 2017.

As guitar maker, I am very much concerned about environment. I am constantly trying to improve, innovate but also, to respect  environment. That is the reason why I am included in the list of the Leonardo Research Project encouraging luthiers to use and get adapted to non-tropical wood species in guitar-making. By now I only use wood with CITES or non-tropical wood, but there is still much to research about wood species and respect to our environmentañ heritage.

Through this link you will be informed on how to participate:


World Environment Day is a chance to reconnect with nature and celebrate the places that matter most to you.
