Color Kartel / Biodegradable marker pen

Color Kartel
Color Kartel

Color Kartel is a line of 100% plastic-free markers that seeks to raise awareness among users about their consumption habits by offering a biodegradable and compostable alternative which proposes a way of use that produces no waste.

It is a guided experience based on a series of cues and feedback to encourage the use of all its components until the product is totally consumed. When the marker stops writing, the user will not need to throw it away, a fresh new life will be about to start which will bring a warm light and a pleasant smell.
