This 12 pack of colored pencils is both tree-free and plastic-free. By using 100% recycled newspapers, these pencils help reduce our dependence on virgin wood. In the pencil industry alone, some 82,000 trees are felled.
And unlike traditional colored pencils, these are paint free!
Color in a healthier planet with colorful and eco friendly pencils.
Tree-free, UPcycled from recycled newspapers
Woman-owned company that gives 1% of all revenue to environmental and social causes, just like us!
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Size: package is 7.5" tall X 1.5" diameter; each pencil is 7" long and 1/4" in diameter, just like 'normal' colored pencils. Use: Color and sharpen as usual.
PACKAGING In full disclosure, these 12 pencils come in a kraft tube, which is likely from trees. However, we don't know if it is from 100% post consumer waste or it's new. The good news is that it's 100% plastic free, non-bleached, fully compostable, AND reusable as a pencil tote long after these colored guys are gone. END OF PRODUCT LIFE Compostable.
SOURCE While this product is made in China, we are confident in its production because this woman-owned Chicago business is led by a woman who spent 10 years in China, working with manufacturers who share her commitment to people and planet.
ABOUT THE COMPANY From Zefiro: It’s not about being perfect. Nobody is. It’s about being conscious that our actions matter. What we buy matters. What we waste matters. What we send to the landfill matters. What ends up in our oceans and ends up in our fish, matters. Every small step we take, makes a difference.
We’ve all become aware that we need to recycle but we need to start shifting our perspective to reducing and reusing before we think about recycling!
That's why Zefiro's mission is to help us reduce and reuse by offering products that are free of unnecessary packaging, minimize single use waste and are safe for both us and the planet.
