Recyclable pencil / pencil

Recyclable pencil
Recyclable pencil

If only every little thing could be recycled as easily as a plastic bottle…These pencils are made of a solid type of wax that can be reused many times.The pencils will be sharpened day after day and eventually disappear into a small handful of wax shavings.These shavings can be collected and, after adding a new graphite core, melted into a new pencil.Pencil after pencil, the wax color will darken as it contains more and more graphite residue, going from clear tones to darker ones.And so the recycled pencil will never look entirely new: with its variation of color, it will rather show the mark of all the pencils that came before him.
