Elephants no doubt died to supply the ivory in this piano’s keys.

Trees certainly died to supply the wood.

This piano was - essentially - taken from its former owner and left to a family that neglected it.  It’s being left to the elements and it will then be burned.
Its destruction by fire will warm no one, will light no one’s way, it will sound its own death.

Its carbon will dirty our air.  (To paraphrase Melville, we will all breathe in its dying breaths.)
