Plant a tree with a pencil!

This brand new Sprout pencil is the only plantable pencil in the world that grows into a tree! This pencil completes the circle of life – it goes from tree to pencil and right back from a pencil to a tree.

Right now, climate change and sustainability are topics hot on everyone’s minds, these pencils are a visible symbol of recycling and supporting our environment.

Once planted it takes only 2-3 weeks to sprout and you will have the beginnings of your fragrant and festive tree! It’s the ideal Christmas gift.

Pack of Sprout pencils.

Usually, tree seeds take an age to germinate (not counting how long it takes to grow into a tree!) but the Sprout Pencil can be potted indoors on a windowsill and be sprouted in just 2-3 weeks.

The plant can be re-potted when it grows bigger and can even then be grown outside! The trees don’t shed their needles, so you can enjoy them all year round. And you won’t have to wait too long for them to get bigger – they can grow as much as 6-11 inches each season!

On average, the Spruce trees live around 180-200 years, meaning not only are you cutting down on plastic waste by switching from a plastic pen to a Sprout Pencil, you’re leaving behind a beautiful legacy that can potentially be enjoyed for hundreds of years to come.

The pencils themselves are made from sustainable harvested wood, the capsule itself is plant-based and the writing core is made out of non-toxic, 100% natural graphite.

When your pencil becomes too short to write with, you plant the pencil and give it a new life just when it would normally be thrown in the bin!

The pencils come engraved with the following inspirational tree-related quotes:

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best is now.”

“Reversing deforestation is complicated; planting a tree is simple.”

“To plant trees is to give body and life to one’s dreams of a better world.”

“Plant a memory, plant a tree, do it today for tomorrow.”

“He who plants a tree, plants a hope.”

The pencils are £10.83 for a pack of 5 pencils! They’re available to buy here.
