Clean Earth: Pens And Pencils

Make a better impression in your written work... 

Americans buy more than 5.1 billion pens every year, and most are the disposable type, thrown in the trash once the ink runs dry. That adds up to about 770 tons more of unnecessary plastic waste in landfills each year.

Make a better impression in your written work by using long-life refillable pens made from recycled plastic, paper, or timber, or from fully biodegradable bio-plastic (derived from corn starch). Also, look for pencils manufactured from sustainably harvested timber or wood substitutes such as recycled paper, old plastic cups, wood offcuts, and reclaimed denim.
