THE FIRST PLANTABLE PENCIL

Three students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, came up with this idea for the task: “Design the sustainable office article of tomorrow” The students set out to create the first plantable pencil in the world. The Sprout pencil was designed to be made out of sustainable wood with a dissolvable end capsule containing seeds.

HUGE GLOBAL INTEREST

The first Sprout pencil was sold in the summer of 2013. There was overwhelming interest from press, bloggers, businesses, organizations, and consumers. The demand increased steadily as the awareness of the Sprout pencil was backed globally by PR and recommendations.
