Maybe you have a child or grandchild who’s learning to write, or you’re partial to a spot of sketching yourself, these pencils are the investment that just keeps on giving. Cleverly made from recycled CD cases which could have otherwise ended up in landfill, these sleek, modern pencils are gold with a metallic gold embossed design, but that’s not all they’ve got going for them… 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. Pencils are a universal symbol of education and unity between children all over the world, which is the thought process behind Evan’s brainwave. 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.
