Tree Pencil / Pencil

Tree Pencil
Tree Pencil

The tree pencil is made of coffee grounds, which is thrown away after brewing the coffee, and environment friendly glue that will be composted, and then it will be born as a pencil again if we put tree seeds in almost used pencils to be buried in soil. The pencil has been designed to meet the purpose in which we preserve the environment that has been injured by our indiscreet behaviors. The tree pencil will plant a love for the nature in the hearts of children all over the world, letting them learn that a pencil they have used up may be born again as a tree.
