Penboo / Pen


Almost 1.6 billion pens end up in landfill or as litter every year in the US alone. Penboo is a recyclable and sustainable way to reduce plastic waste and decrease production carbon emissions. The design takes advantage of bamboo’s hollow nature and uses a mould to shape it efficiently as it grows.Penboo empowers to consumers to contribute less to land pollution, and move away from disposable, single-use plastic pens.
