Did you know that every year, the United States alone throws out 1.6 billion plastic pens? And that is just the US alone, without the rest of the world!
Until computers completely take over, we will always need something to write with, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that those pens and pencils have to end up in landfills. While more eco-friendly solutions to non-compostable pens and pencils are popping up, our all time favourite solution is the Sprout Pencil, the unique Plantable Pencil!
The Plantable Pencil! How Does It Work?
The Sprout Pencil is not just any old biodegradable pencil – it is 100% plantable! In place of an eraser, the end of the pencil has a water-soluble capsule filled with seeds. Once the pencil is finished, it can simply be planted into some soil. The seed will germinate, then grow into flowers, herbs or vegetables, depending on which type of seed the capsule is customised with.
What Seeds Can I Choose from my Sprout Pencils?
Sprout Pencils are available with a wide range of seeds to suit any marketing campaign.
- Flowers – Sunflower, Carnation, Forget Me Not, Daisy
- Herbs – Basil, Thyme, Sage, Coriander
- Fruit & Veg – Cherry Tomato
Custom-Print Sprout Pencils with Your Business Logo
Even cooler, the pencils can be laser engraved (10cm x 0.5cm) with a custom logo or message, making them an ideal marketing tool for brands of all sorts. Colour pencils are also available, and can “sprout” into a variety of 12 different plants.
From a marketing standpoint, there is tremendous value in a seed-based promotional product like a Sprout Pencil. Not only are clients reminded of your marketing message each time they use the pencil, but, if they decide to plant it, their relationship with the branded product turns into a nurturing one. As they tend to the plant and watch it grow, they form a stronger bond to your brand.
How often do you come across a product that’s great for your clients, business, and the environment! Leave it to the Sprout Pencil!
