Eco Writing Tools



Ever meet a person who is obsessed with office supplies? We recently met TWO such individuals at a Vegas trade show who were only too happy to identify a few of their latest loves of writing utensils. While many were pricey (hello, Mont Blanc?), one suggestion did get us paying attention:

Earthzone (a Canadian company) makes pencils from 100% recycled newspaper...we've been assured by these pen-enthusiasts that the recycled content actually makes the product a better writing tool - easier to sharpen and offers a smoother "flow". The Earthzone website is under construction but you can send them an emailing info@earthzone.ca

Of course, the Earthzone pencils are quite similar to the eco Smencils we have spoken about in the past. They are also made from 100% recycled newspaper, but these of course come in fresh smelling scents that aim to make note-taking a tad more pleasurable. Yes, they are marketed to kids, but young adults are fans too.

All this talk about eco writing tools got us thinking - what else is out there? Et voila, just like that we stumbled upon a whole website devoted to Eco Friendly Pens. Based in California, TrailBlazer Promotions offers more than 50 styles of eco-pens - from recycled to bio-plastic to wood, and beyond. To view their website, click HERE.
