Pencils are powerful. For generations, pencils have helped us share, dream, and communicate ideas. It’s one of the earliest forms of self-expression. Without a doubt, there’s something magical about the “power of a pencil.”
Without pencils, youngsters would have never learned how to write their name, Superheroes might never have been sketched, and our grandest buildings might have never been built.
Traditional wood-based pencils are the result of heavy deforestation and manufacturing. A 20-foot Pine tree needs to be cut down to make 2500 pencils; and there are over 14 billion pencils produced worldwide every year. Think about the number of trees that have been cut . . . to make the pencil you hold in your hand.
With every tree that is cut, global warming and climate change becomes a more shocking reality – massive droughts and floods, soaring temperatures, melting icecaps, rising seawater levels, and entire forest ecosystems being destroyed.
That’s a serious toll on the planet. A pencil, so powerful, must also have a deep impact on the future of the planet – conserve and not destroy. Lead, but not forsake. A pencil shapes the course of our future – and it must lead the next generation to a more sustainable world.
Think about a world where you have pencils that are 100% ecofriendly. Cleanest, safest and most environmentally-efficient pencils you can use anywhere – at home, at school, or in the office!
With Plantcil, we take paper out of the landfills or recycling plants and put them back into your hands – as a high-quality 2HB pencil!
With no wood in them whatsoever, Plantcil gives you the same great writing quality that you would get from a standard 2HB pencil, but with a greater benefit to the planet and the environment. We save trees…and that’s a cool thing!
Plantcil isn’t just another idea. It is a silent upheaval. Towards making a better tomorrow. For our children, and our children’s children.
