Get Yourself a Pen-For-Life.

What's It Worth? ...

80 Points


The Why.

Every Year, we have enough disposed pens to wrap around the world …


Plastic pens can't go in the recycling. On average we throw away about 5 pens each per year - in the UK that's about 330 million every year.

End to end, you could wrap these around the Earth and still have a modest 50 million pens left over!

The How.

Get yourself a pen-for-life … a real sexy one …


Get yourself a pen-for-life, your very own pen, one that you'll get quite attached to, one that if people ask you to borrow, you'll say yes, but you'll not be happy about it!

Normally, refills do contain a small amount of plastic, but dramatically less than a disposables, or, there are also plenty of plastic free options out there.

For the plastic pens we do have, we can save them up and drop off with TerraCycle ... see links below.
