Recycled PET Mechanical Pencils – 3pk
This product is packaged or shipped in materials that contain recycled content.
Recycled plastic utilizes salvaged post-industrial plastic scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers, and transforms them into new products. The containers are sorted, crushed, and then heated to form resins, which are liquid plastics that can harden into new shapes. These resins can be molded and used to create anything from carpet to outdoor furniture. Recycling plastic lowers the amount of petroleum extracted and the production of greenhouse gasses associated with first-time plastic production. Plus, by using these existing materials, we’re benefiting from the original energy and resources spent to create them in the first place, while diverting waste from the landfill.
First we had the classic pencil. Then we had the plastic mechanical pencil. Now, Onyx and Green is tackling a new front with their Recycled PET Mechanical Pencils–made from recycled PET that comes from used plastic water bottles. This 3 pack of assorted color mechanical pencils comes with back-up leads in size .7mm, with product packaging from recycled paper with soy-based inks.
