Pencil seed / pencil

Pencil seed

Turn away your pencil stub to the nature instead of throwing them away.
This is a pencil made of palm trees, compressed to be cultural soil- It starts to disintegrate as it meets water and creates an environment for a plant to grow.
Plow the stub in the land
and Water it!
The compressed wood disintegrates into cultural soil.
The seed which was hidden
inside the pencil begins to
sprout. Pencils made by nature will become nature again.
