Compost your pen

February 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

We used to say ‘think before you print’, now it seems that we will start saying ‘think before you write’.

Over the last 60 years, 100 billion disposable pens have been sold globally. They are made from non biodegradable petroleum-based plastics and their ink contains toxic chemicals, which are bad for us and the environment. Pretty amazing? Now, it’s time to change our habits and use this new 98% biodegradable pen, composed by environmentally friendly ingredients, where everything but the nib of the pen can be composted.
