Plantable Pencils

The Sprout Pencil is the first plantable sustainable pencil in the world. By replacing the eraser with a special seed capsule, it serves a cool dual function of completing essays and sprouting vegetation!

Made of natural materials, the seeds within the capsule are high quality, non-gmo seeds. The capsule is water soluble, making the pencil easy to plant after use. Fresh herbs, crispy vegetables, or edible flowers, will then grow out of the pencil.
