Why use eco-friendly promotional products?
The world seems obsessed with plastic, much of it is single use. As a consequence, globally a whopping 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic goes into landfill each year – that’s the same amount of weight of 1 billion elephants!
This trash builds up, damaging the soil and emitting a huge amount of methane, which is a big contributor to climate change.
While promotional products may only count for a small amount of the plastic that ends up in landfills – we believe that small changes can lead to big things!
If you want to show your friends, colleagues and customers that you’re passionate about protecting our amazing planet, switch to eco-friendly promotional products.
Let us be your eco promotional products partner
When sourcing eco friendly promotional merchandise you want to know that the company you’re buying from is serious about sustainability. We are!
Way back in 2013, our chairman Michael Stausholm came across a plantable pencil that some MIT students had put up on Kickstarter. Michael loved the idea so much he bought the rights to it and that was the start of Sprout World.
We like to say that “sustainability is in our DNA.” We love our planet and we want to inspire others to care more for our natural world through the use of innovative, fun everyday items – the plantable Sprout pencil and our Sprout Spoon.
We’ve designed our production techniques to be as sustainable as possible, including having production partners in Poland that serve our European market and in the US for our American market.

Plantable Sprout pencil
Are you looking for an alternative to promotional plastic pens that may break after a few uses? Then eco friendly pencils are a perfect solution. But, why not go one step further and use our plantable Sprout pencils that burst into life after use as part of your eco friendly promotional materials?
Once our plantable Sprout pencil is too short to use, place the end with the seed capsule in some soil, water it and watch as it grows into fresh vegetables, luscious flowers or fragrant herbs – an eco pencil with plenty of life!
Made using only sustainably harvested wood that’s either FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certificate) wood, our plantable Sprout pencils contain GMO-free seeds held within a plant-based material seed capsule that biodegrades when placed in soil.
You can choose to give-away graphite pencils, color pencils or our popular Rainbow pencil that has three colors in one – red, yellow and blue. Customize your plantable Sprout pencil by engraving a personalized message to make your pencil really stand out and to also start a conversation about sustainability and the importance of caring for the plants, flowers and animals that populate our plant!

This may come as a surprise, but a lot of plastic goes into making a cup of tea; some teabags contain plastic. Yuk! And, then there’s the plastic spoon or stirrer that’s used to stir the tea.
If you would like to allow your friends, colleagues or visitors the opportunity to enjoy a delicious cup of plastic-free tea then use our Sprout Spoon as part of your eco promotional merchandise.
Part of the fun of our Sprout Spoon is the process of making the tea; unfold the teabag so it resembles a spoon, brew in hot water and give it a squeeze to release all the fair-trade tea flavors. People can then sit back enjoying a tasty cup of tea knowing the Sprout Spoon is being broken down by nature’s own composting process.
Our Sprout Spoons are made using sustainable production techniques and come in three flavors; black tea vanilla, green tea with lemon and ginger and a caffeine-free herbal blend tea.
Get people interested in your company using sustainable promotional products by customizing the Sprout Spoon with your company logo or personalized message.
