Zhaoliangtian / Half Pencil


The color of the pencil is black and white just like the color of pandas. The eraser takes the shape and color of bamboos. There is a notch in the middle of the pencil to remind purchasers of the use rate. If a purchaser cannot use up a pencil, he or she can break the pencil and eraser into two halves. The eraser can turn to be an extender, attached to one half of the pencil. The purchaser can give the other half of the pencil to the store which will then send it to impoverished mountainous areas and donate it to underprivileged children. It is an act of contribution to the public welfare.
