Popular questions about our great eco-friendly corporate gift: The Seed Pencil!

The concept is when the pencil stub becomes too short to use, it is then planted – a true Eco-friendly Corporate Gift. As a result, the pencil’s journey has ended but a new one of growth and sustainability has begun. Furthermore, instead of the pencil being disposed of with no purpose, the Seed Pencil becomes a symbol of sustainability to both the planter and individuals that see this unique item. The impression of both the item and the brand it is associated to, is incomparable with any current conventional or Eco-friendly Corporate Gift in the market. In addition, for households it sends a clear and important message to individuals about the importance of sustainability and the ease of putting it into practice.

  4. Water the soil around the capsule regularly to maintain moistness.
  5. DO NOT OVERWATER.
