The modern pencil has been around since 1795, and since then, not much has changed. That is, until Sprout created the world's first plantable pencil. Originally invented by 3 students from MIT in Boston, the Sprout pencil company was established in 2012 by Danish entrepreneurs Michael Stausholm and Jonathan Low. They started selling their innovative product in Denmark, when it spread rapidly, and became a staple in many European countries as well as North America. Today, Sprout is sold in over 60 different counties, bringing the magic and joy of eco-friendly plantable pencils to schools and offices across the globe.
