Sprout pencils are sustainable in their own right – they grow a green new life when they have finished and become too short to use. Instead of throwing the pencil stubs away, now you can turn them into flowers and herbs, which is why Footprint, a local environmental-conscious non-government organisation, loved about this gift solution. The sprout pencils were given out as a gift for the participants in the Hong Kong Biodiversity Festival 2016 Guided Tour.
What do you usually do when you’re done with a wooden pencil? Toss it? Mostly likely. But with these Sprout Pencils you can help the environment by…sticking them in the ground. You heard that right. These special seed pencils can be planted and your choice of plant will spring out of the ground in a week!
