Imagine giving a gift that can live for 100 years or more. The idea of the plantable Sprout pencil is to plant it when it becomes too short to write with, thus giving new life to an end-of-life product that you would otherwise throw in the garbage!
Sprout World’s pencils are available with 10 different seeds that grow into vegetables, flowers and herbs. And now the Sprout pencil can also turn into a tree. Thus, the circle is complete: trees become pencils, which can then grow into spruce trees. Evergreen conifers that absorb CO2 and give us oxygen as they grow.
And recently they have launched an innovative beauty product—the world’s first plantable eye and brow liner!
These are the only liners in the world with a capsule at the end with seeds so it can be planted after use and grown into wildflowers. The patented liner is AC-tested (allergy-friendly), with a natural formula, free of microplastics, and is added with natural oils that are good for the skin.
Sprout World’s new makeup pencils join the list of plantable pencils and writing pencils that you can plant after you use them so you don’t need to just throw them away! You can give something positive back to nature, and rest assured that you are giving your used product a ‘second life.’
What could be a better gift to give someone you love, and give back to the environment at the same time?
