Plantable Recycled Paper Pencils
Did you know that about 8 million trees are chopped down each year just to produce pencils? Green Tie Enterprise is here to remedy that with its plantable recycled paper pencils!
Made from old newspapers by unemployed, stay-at-home moms in Camarines Sur, Bicol, Usbong's pencils aim to increase environmental and agricultural awareness and initiatives. And when you're all done, you can plant the pencil and grow some of your own food at home!
Comes in a box of 6 pencils plus a free pencil sharpener.
Upcycled newspapers; crop seeds
- 1 pencil: 0.5 x 0.5 x 19.25 cm

How to Use
Sharpen and use as you would a normal pencil. When you've reached the end, plant the seed pod at the end of the pencil into the soil and watch your crops grow! The type of crop is written on the pencil.
