Cleverly made from recycled CD cases which could have otherwise ended up in landfill, these pencils may be small, but they are a giant leap into a sustainable lifestyle. The bright and bold clementine colour with gold detailing really stands out, making these pencils just as eye-catching as they are eco-friendly.
Pencils are a universal symbol of education and unity between children all over the world, which is the thought process behind their founder’s brainwave. Back in 2014, environmental entrepreneur, Evan Lewis, bought a run-down facility producing pencils from recycled CD cases, which soon became a successful business. At the time, there was a string of devastating man-made and natural disasters effecting children worldwide, especially their education.
With money that the company was making from pencil sales, he decided to give money to rebuild schools, pay teachers and provide essential materials, and even launched Share a Pencil Day. Check out our blog for more information about VENT and their inspirational work.
