Magic Room Brand Music Accessories: After being a drummer for 30 years, Vijoy Rao realized that the chemically treated wood and plastic that were used for sticks and picks had a major environmental impact. He decided to do something about it, creating eco-friendly, 100% biodegradable drumsticks and guitar picks. Made from bamboo, the products are incredibly lightweight and strong. Bamboo doesn't require a lot of resources to grow, matures in 1/10th the time as many commonly used trees, and is a grass (not wood) so there are no issues with deforestation.
