Count ’em. How many pencils do you have in your junk drawer that have reached finger-cramp-too-stubby-to-use level? More than a few, right? And once you realize it’s been 10 years and it’s that time again to clean out your junk drawer, all those scrappy pencils get dumped into the garbage, yes? Bleh.
Enter Sprout, a sustainable pencil that you can plant when it’s no longer usable. The pencil not only comes in a variety of colors, but can grow into 13 different plants (whaaa?) including basil, coriander, rosemary, sage, and more! The pencils are now offered in several countries through Amazon.
That’s what I call creative repurposing.
