min order value applicable
Around 80000 treees are cut annually to cater to the demand for wooden pencils. On the other hand, around 24 pencils can be made with just 1 kg of recycled paper.
This simple fact hints at the contrasting carboon foorprint levels that go into making these products.
Recycled pencils are a better feature-by-feature alternative to wooden pencils:
- They are more durable
- They contribute to a smoother writing experience
- They are easier to handle and maneouvre, owing to their overall weight
We use post-consumer newspaper to make the pencils. The newspaper sheets are first block printed before being roll wrapped in the pencil making process. These pencils are our small conntribution to the livelihood of an out-of-work block printer who has about 45 years of experience.
These pencils are available in 4 designs and come packaged as a set of 10 in our specially designed Kaleidobox.
