Put your money where your heart is: at the heart of recycling, by purchasing recycled pencils and other back to school supplies. The quality of these pencils... are good enough to make some beautiful drawings as well as to take some great notes!
These pencils have a smooth graphite core (and make great drawing pencils too!) for those who are picky about pencil consistency. The Ticonderoga Pencil is made from recycled wood has natural finish. Premium pencil featuring #2 graphite core comes with top quality latex-free eraser. PMA Certified non-toxic pencil is sold as 10 per pack.
*sidenote: Ticonderoga made the BEST colored pencils my fingers had ever touched and now they're GONE. Why don't they make them anymore? I still cry into my coffee about the loss of that great color pencil. Sadness. Sadness and crying.
For those who prefer a mechanical pencil (Personally, as a person who writes very hard, I do not see the appeal and it's a huge point of frustration for me...) The BIC Eco Life Non-Refillable Mechanical Pencils are made from 76% recycled plastic and they claim that one BIC Pencil equals 2 1/2 woodcase pencils.
Quicker lead advancing design offers smooth, smudge-free writing that is easy to erase. Comes filled with 3 full length, 0.7 mm, self-feeding #2 leads with assorted barrel colors.
I have not yet met these pencils, and I already love them. First off, they're one of the best pencil brands. Secondly, super eco-friendly. I'm ordering some for me RIGHT NOW. *Ummm.... I mean my daughter... for fourth grade... back to school...
ANYWAY, 100% RECYCLABLE AND REFORESTED WOOD! How awesome is that?!
No list of recycled pencils is complete without the 90s famous recycled paper pencils? Remember the ones made out of money? And how it was such a huge fad? They're still around! Here are some NEWSPAPER pencils. Cute, right? Dibs on the pencil made from the Sunday Funnies!
Hey guys- I think I found the BEST PENCILS EVER! I have no idea how they write, how they work but WHO CARES BECAUSE THEY TURN INTO PLANTS!!! These pencils are recycled, earth friendly, sustainable, renewable and made in the USA. They're a total win-win. The price is a little hefty for a pencil, but I'm thinking about buying a pack and putting one in each stocking. It's such a cool product, that I think we can support it despite the price in the hope that they're able to reduce manufacturing costs in the future.
I'm pretty stoked about this. Pencils that turn into herd gardens, who would have thought?
