Ball pens are 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
plastic is consumed for its production. But these use & throw plastic pens
are not recycled & hence worstly increasing the plastic footprint on earth.
Let’s have a look on
- Use & throw pens cost are low but it cost higher for Nature!
- There are no organized ways
for recycling of plastic pens
- 27 lacs Plastic pens are
produced per day
- 1.6 Billion pens waste are
dumped on ground all over the world
Plastic takes approx 400
years to decompose. Due to rapidly increasing landfills & littering in
water, soil life & sea life both are terribly getting bad impact. 8 million
tons plastic thrown in sea every year. Crude oil & some toxic elements like
formaldehyde, phenol needs lot of electricity to produce plastic, thereby
increasing carbon footprints.

upcycling the existing waste paper to make eco stationery items.

Plastic pens are demanded as Use & Throw pens in the market, which further becomes threat for Nature. Mostly these plastic pens are not recycled & even scrap pickers avoid to take these pens from public. At the end these plastic pens goes to the landfills & oceans thereby boosting up Plastic footprints.

imagine, after use if you throw these eco pens to open lands & it grows
into green plants after some days, isn’t that really An Eco Friendly Vision?

kinds of seeds like Tulasi, marigold, fenugreek, zinnia, coriander
