Have you ever thought about what goes into making a pencil? First of all, a tree needs to be cut down in order to supply the wood. Then, graphite needs to be inserted inside the pencil so you can write. When it’s all said and done, what you end up with is a standard, ordinary pencil that isn’t actually eco-friendly.And that process is only for one pencil. Now, multiply that by 14 billion, and that’s how many environmentally unfriendly pencils are produced and discarded each and every year. That’s quite a toll on forests, eco-systems and landfills.
Greenciles® are the revolutionary, environmentally-sensitive pencils that are made completely of recycled paper. With no wood in them whatsoever, Greenciles® give 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.
Traditional wood-based pencils are the result of heavy deforestation and manufacturing. In addition to harvesting wood, ordinary pencils need to be made in factories, thus increasing environmental harm and damage. Modern pencils are made by using an industrial-based method of mixing and firing, which ultimately ends up polluting the planet.
With Greenciles®, no raw-materials are required or used. Instead, Greenciles® are made completely of recycled paper of all kinds: newsprint, printer paper, stationery, etc. The paper is cleaned, reused and wrapped around a safe graphite writing core. As a result, Greenciles® are the cleanest, safest and most environmentally-efficient pencils you can use anywhere – at home, at school, or in the office!
We’re all told to think globally and act locally. There isn’t more of a local act than using an eco-friendly writing utensil. Great for all uses, including writing, drawing, drafting and sketching, Greenciles® takes paper out of the landfills or recycling plants and puts them back into your hands – as a high-quality 2HB pencil! If you’re looking to go green at home or the office, then start with the pencils you’re using. Order your 10-pack of Greenciles® today and write like you’ve never written before!
