These days most students use mechanical pencils made of plastic, which we know takes forever to break down. When the old school pencils, aka the ones made out of wood, get too short, they have a new lease on life.
Sprout has come out with a sustainable line of pencils. When the pencil gets too short to use, they can be planted in soil. Within a few weeks, your new plant will sprout.
These pencils are made for everyday use. Eco-friendly businesses can get their logos engraved on the pencil's. These pencil's may not change the world but they are a great way to start a conversation on sustainability.
