The Sprout Pencil: Growing A Tree When You Have No Lead

This is going to be an interesting article, and because of the title, you’re probably intrigued. Yes, there is a pencil out there that has seeds in it, and is eco friendly.

Sprout, the company that makes these, says that once there is no more lead left in the pencil, and when you have sharpened it until it can’t go down any more, you are allowed to plant it. The pencil has no eraser, so in place of that spot lies the pod containing seeds.

The other cool thing is that if you want to customize them for your company, you can. They cost $14.95 for a pack of 8 on Amazon, and I recommend that you look into them. (You’ll make the world a little better!)
