Yes, you read that right.
Sprout’s pencils can be planted after you’ve used them and they grow into herbs, flowers, vegetables and even spruce trees. The idea behind this unique item is that if you can upgrade a pencil so it has a second life as a plant, what other small changes can you make in your everyday life to be more sustainable?
Planting a pencil is not just about celebrating the glory of plants and making the unusual possible, it’s also a step on the path to zero waste living, and considering the full life cycle of anything you use.
This innovative idea is making a big impact, with over 40 million pencils sold across 80 countries. The sustainable giveaway for individuals and organizations that want to grow a green mindset.
Sprout’s pencils can be personalised with your logo or message. The pencil’s come with a presentation card with instructions. Random selection of several plants: Basil, Carnation, Cherry tomato, Chia, Coriander, Daisy, Forget me not, Sage, Thyme, Sunflower.
