Go Full Circle with Sprout: The Plantable Pencil
June 23rd, 2014 | by Fletcher
There are some interesting eco-friendly projects going on in the world right now, but the Sprout pencil one ups them all. It’s made out of wood, but it gives back to the environment in an unique way.
The Sprout pencil comes from the folks at Democratech, and it’s the coolest pencil you’re likely to see. It’s made of sustainably grown cedar wood, but has a seed capsule on the end where an eraser would normally be. You use the pencil as you would any other, and when you’re done you simply need to stick it in a pot, add water, and let nature take care of the rest.
The Sprout pencil comes with several types of seed varieties including cilantro, dill, sage, thyme, and basil among others. Check out the official site to find out where you can pick up some plant pencils of your own.
