Preferred by Nature

Martin Guitar has officially achieved Preferred by Nature Sustainability Framework certification for the Martin OM Biosphere guitar, making the company the first to achieve this certification in the U.S., and only the second worldwide.

The OM Biosphere™ was designed to show Martin’s support for the preservation and replenishment of coral reefs, which are some of the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on earth. The model is 100% FSC® certified (license code FSC-C008304) and only the second plastic-free guitar in production today, preceded by the 00L Earth guitar. Even the gig bag is sustainable: made from hemp—a Martin first. Now with the Preferred by Nature certification, this model will be adorned with the Preferred by Nature Hummingbird Seal, a distinction that was not easily earned and one that the company is quite proud of.
