I <3 Pencils and the earth?

I just got back from my most favourite place in the entire world – besides the library – “Chapters” …. Oh how I love

bookstores, anyway I spend some time wandering around also had a coffee with my man in the coffee shop and picked up a couple new books to read – I dont think I will ever have enough books.

Anyway, one thing you dont know about me (among many haha) is that I really love pencils – not mechanical ones 😦 but real old style eraser on the end pencils. So when I saw these EARTHZONE recycled  pencils I simply HAD to have them.

Wood Pencils vs. Earthzone Recycled Pencils

We at Earthzone believe strongly in our product’s value as a superior quality and fully sustainable pencil.

To make traditional HB pencils, forests the size of 90 tennis courts are cut down every minute to supply wood. Each year, 14 billion of these pencils are made in polluting factories and thrown away in landfills that harm our ecosystems. Scientific studies have proven that producing pencils in this way is damaging the environment.

Earthzone pencils are made of 100% recycled newspaper and require no raw materials or toxic chemicals. By reusing a 4-foot stack of newspapers, one 40-foot pine tree can be saved. No Earthzone pencil is the same, and they look and feel exactly like conventional pencils, only they perform better. You can even recycle the shreds when you sharpen them!

Hmm.. you learn something great everyday.
