Choose sustainable pencils

Pencils are needed all the time at school. Choose one of the several sustainable options out there for your kids.

But before buying, check around and use all the old pencils you can find in your house. With a little sharpener, they will be like new in no time.

When shopping, one cool option can be to buy plantable pencils. They are eco-friendly and kids will get to plant the seeds they contain at the end of their life. Great activity!

You can also get pencils from recycled materials. For example, some are made from recycled newspapers.

For new wooden pencils, always choose FSC certified pencils. This guarantees that the wood used to make them has been harvested sustainably.

Finally, think about the reusable ones. They are often made of plastic, but if you take good care of them, they can last for longer and reduce waste.

There are plenty of options out there. Choose what works best for you, but always think sustainabe, and don’t forget about the packaging! 😉 Easy!
