Rekrit Paper pencils – Upcycling waste paper for the better tomorrow!
Article written by: Mr. Chetan Kothavade (An Ecopreneur, Eco-Trust, Pune)
Pencil is the most important stationery item which is massively
used by school, college students all over the world. And so to fulfill the
requirement of the market huge wood is consumed for its production. Nature’s
destruction is leading to the global warming and many such horrible impacts.
It is estimated that over 8 million trees are being chopped
annually to produce pencils that we use on a daily basis. Over 13 million
hectares of forests are lost to deforestation, out of which 36% is for paper
manufacturing and 42% is for manufacturing timber-based products that
constitutes about 18-20 billion pencils. Moreover, nearly 85 billion tons of
paper wastes are generated each year and 40% of them end up in landfills. In
addition to landfills, 9 billion used pens are thrown away all over the world
annually, accounting to plastic accumulation.

like tulasi, marigold, fenugreek, zinnia etc. These pencils/pens after use if
