Have you ever thought about what goes into making a pencil? First of all, a tree needs to be cut down in order to supply the wood. Then, graphite needs to be inserted inside the pencil so you can write. When it’s all said and done, what you end up with is a standard, ordinary pencil that isn’t actually eco-friendly. And that process is only for one pencil. Now, multiply that by 14 billion, and that’s how many environmentally unfriendly pencils are produced and discarded each and every year. That’s quite a toll on forests, eco-systems and landfills.
Instead, try these innovative pencils made from recycled paper instead of wood. They work just as well, but with a much lower environmental impact.
