Treesmart Makes the Only Kinds of Pencils You’re Going to Want to Buy – Recycled!8:52 am
They make pencils directly from 100% RECYCLED ROLLED UP NEWSPAPERS! One broadsheet of recycled newsprint makes 4 pencils. Isn’t that incredible?
And there are no toxic chemicals and can still be sharpened the old fashioned way. They even come with rubber erasers on the end, just like your public school pencils!
And the best part, aside from the reduction of waste? You can still see the newsprint images and words! Let’s see your yellow # 2 do that!!!
And just because these pencils are made out of newspaper doesn’t mean they don’t look good – they ROCK!
I got some regular pencils and the 12-pack mini colour pencil set which is the cutest little set e-v-e-r and has comes with 2 greens, 2 blues and everything you need to create a masterpiece!
According to the Brandeis University Recycling Program:
“Recycling ONE ton of newspapers saves approximately 17 trees, creates 5 jobs, saves 4,200 kw of energy (enough to power the average home for six months), saves at least 7,000 gallons of water, and keeps almost 60 pounds of air pollution effluents out of the air.”
So do your part and get your pencils here.
It’s the right thing to do. And they’re cool to boot!
