Unfortunately this product comes from afar, just like other plastic pens available on the market. On the other hand, it has the environmental advantage that it is made from recycled paper, so it needs less raw materials to produce, and its waste is harmless.
Producing each ton of paper requires 417 cubic metres of water, 1,7 tons of wood, 717 kWh energy and other additives. In contrast the manufacturing of grey or brown colored (and more eye-appealing if you ask us) recycled paper only needs 100 cubic metres of water, 1150 kilograms black-and-white paper and 300kWh energy.
Recycled paper products are reducing the garbage output and creating useful raw materials. Separate waste collection and recycling only works smoothly, if new products are made from them, and if we are willing to buy these goods.
This is the reason why we are promoting and recommending recycled paper!
