PLANTS FROM PENCILS?
That’s right – once you’ve finished with your Sprout pencil, plant it and watch it grow into fragrant herbs, luscious flowers or even fresh vegetables.
All aspects of the Sprout pencil are sustainable and non-toxic – from the biodegradable seed capsule to the 100% natural clay and graphite core and natural wood. These global certification programs confirm that the wood used comes from fully sustainable forests. In other words, a new tree is planted for each tree harvested and used to make the pencils.
COLORFUL AND FRAGRANT
With popular herbal and flower seeds such as basil, sage and sunflower – each pack of pens is topped off with a biodegradable seed capsule. All seeds are GMO-free and are selected as they are easy to grow – even if you don’t have a green thumb!
SAFE AND FREE OF HARMFUL SUBSTANCES
Every part of the Sprout pencil is non-toxic and contains no lead. So if the pencils are eaten by a child or pet, there is no need to worry as they are completely harmless.
This Special edition contains 32 graphite pencils tipped with seed capsules for growing herbs such as basil, flax and thyme.
Use a pot with a drainage hole in the bottom. Place it on a saucer and fill with good potting soil.
Water the soil so it’s moist but not soggy.
Plant the pencil at an angle and not too deep. The soil should just cover the seed capsule.
Place the pot in natural light but avoid direct sunlight. A temperature of 20°C is ideal.
Water regularly in the saucer. The first shoots should appear between one and four weeks later.
Lets Make the World Sprout!
Sprout is the Danish start-up company behind the original plantable pencil. Since it was first launched, there’s been an overwhelming interest in our innovative pencils from all corners of the world. We’re delighted and grateful for this attention as it has allowed us to spread our message to even more people and places.
Each Sprout pencil is equipped with a biodegradable seed capsule containing a coveted seed variety. When the pencil is too short to write, simply turn it upside down and plant the stump. If you water it regularly, you’ll see the pencil transform into a plant.
By planting a Sprout pencil instead of throwing it out, you can make sustainability visible to others. And inspire them to make changes in their daily life. This is the idea behind the Sprout range. And it’s struck a chord, as our products are now available in over 60 countries around the world.
🖉 MAKE THE WORLD SPROUT – Plant your pencil. Sustainability is not just something we encourage our customers to promote. We incorporate it in all aspects of our business at Sprout. Look closely at the tip of this unique pencil and you’ll see a small seed capsule. Each pencil indicates what plant will grow.
