If you're looking for an eco-friendly pencil this back to school season, Paper Mate has your answer: EarthWrite Recycled Pencils. Each pencil is made from 100% recycled materials- even the lead and eraser.
The story behind these pencils will make you want to buy them! The wood of the pencil is made from reclaimed wood (100% recycled)...from old buildings, bridges, railroad ties, barns and mills. The lead is non-waxed and with a green, vinyl eraser. Why is using reclaimed wood important? This eliminates the need for virgin wood, which builds roads in roadless areas, affecting indigeous people.
