Promotional items have been used for centuries as a means of advertising businesses, and they continue to be used because they’re an easy way for businesses to get their brand seen.
In recent years there’s been a shift from giving away plastic promotional items to sustainable promotional items. Our plantable Sprout pencils are the ideal promotion pencils for businesses that have sustainability at their heart.
Made using sustainably harvested wood and containing a mixture of non-toxic graphite and clay writing material, the plantable Sprout pencil has a seed capsule containing GMO-free seeds that can grow into luscious flowers, tasty herbs or fresh vegetables when planted.
The idea is that the promotion pencil is used and when there’s only the stub of the pencil left the plant-based material seed capsule is planted, and what remains of the pencil acts as a name-tag for the plant.
