Sprout MATITA made of wood THAT PIANTA capsule WITH SEME to grow a GIRASOLE plant
Sprout: the only pencil in the world that you can plant after use... plant the pencil!
What if instead of throwing away the pencil butts you could plant them, grow them and make them something delicious, beautiful and fun?
Mario Bollini, an Italian engineer student at MIT asked this question and together with a team tried to create a product for the office and eco-friendly home and, in the fall of 2012, Sprout was born.
Sprout is a simple pencil made of quality cedar or linhane, grown sustainably and FSC-certified.
At the end of the pencil, a biodegradable capsule, contains the seeds of the plant whose name is engraved on the pencil itself!
The quality of writing guaranteed is very good.
Sprout is handmade in Minnesota (USA) and Denmark: all employees work in good working conditions and are paid on fair wages.
Sprout contains absolutely no lead!
The writing material is made up of graphite and clay, so they are natural materials that pose no risk to the environment.
You therefore do not run any risk in planting or eating the herbs that the pencil can produce!
