There’s only one Earth, let’s look after it

Earth Day has been taking place every year on 22nd April since 1970. Today, its mission remains strong – to raise public awareness of the effects that the choices we make has on the planet. 🌍

Talking about taking care of the planet is all well and good, but real change only happens when people start taking action. There are many ways you can get involved, and one of the easiest is swapping plastic products for sustainable, eco-friendly alternatives.

Why we need Earth Day

There’s no denying that a growing global population is having a huge impact on the planet.
Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants, and it’s used in so many products, some of which you’ll be surprised about like chewing gum, toothpaste, tea bags and clothing.

Earth Day acts as a conscious reminder of how vital it is that all of us do whatever we can to protect the planet for future generations. As well as encouraging people to take action on an individual level, it also focuses attention a national and even global level on the importance of working together.

Write a message of hope with plantable Sprout pencils

You may be surprised to know that a small item like a plastic pen can take up to 1000 years to decompose – this isn’t fantastic. While we know that our pencils won’t save the world, they do help to cut down on plastic waste while giving goodness back to the planet.

Our plantable pencils are eco-friendly and biodegradable. Every pencil is made from sustainably sourced wood, and from one tree, we can make a staggering 176,000 pencils.

What makes our pencils extraordinary is that they have a second life – after you’ve written, drawn or doodled with your pencil you can plant it to grow into herbs, flowers, vegetables and even a spruce tree. Yep, that’s right, with our Plant A Tree Edition, you can now turn your pencil back into a tree – yippee!

Gifts that keep on giving

If you’re tired of using plastic pens that end up in a landfill, or if you’re looking for a green gift for someone special, then our plantable pencils are the perfect solution. You can browse and buy all our pencil editions on our EU webshop or on Amazon.

Our plantable pencils also make unique sustainable corporate gifts that can be customized and given away at conferences, trade fairs or gifted to your customers. Speak to us to find out about the different customization options, to request a price list or to place an order. Our friendly team is waiting to help.

Use makeup to plant a green mindset

Our plantable Sprout pencils are so popular, we had the thought, how can we offer this concept to more people? After months of research and planning, the newest member of the Sprout family is here; the Sprout Eyeliner.

The Sprout Eyeliner is the world’s first patented, plantable eyeliner. Just like the Sprout pencil, when the Sprout Eyeliner is too short to use it can be planted – the eyeliner grows into beautiful bee-friendly wildflowers. Wonderful, yes?

The Sprout Eyeliner is kind to you and the planet. Feel good knowing that the eyeliner pencil is made from certified wood and contains a soluble cellulose seed that dissolves in water. Look great using an eyeliner that’s vegan formula, that’s developed without microplastics and that is AllergyCertified.

The Sprout Eyeliner is available to buy in packs of 1, 2 or 5 on our EU webshop. We’re working hard to make the Sprout Eyeliner available to other markets soon.

Spread a lasting message of sustainability with Sprout

The small sustainable steps we take every day will ensure the planet’s survival for generations to come. Spread this important message with plantable Sprout pencils and the new Sprout Eyeliner.

The certified wood and soluble cellulose seed capsule used in both our plantable Sprout pencils and the Sprout Eyeliner helps grow a mindset. In turn, this leads to a greener, healthier and happier planet for all. 💚

That’s not all! We’re thrilled to tell you that when you buy Sprout pencils from our EU webshop, you also have the option of personalizing your pencils with your own message. The possibilities are endless for personalized Sprout pencils; you could personalize them with the details of your wedding and send them out to friends and family as ‘Save the Date’ invites. Or, you could personalize pencils with an inspiring message and gift to new connections at small business meetings or networking events.
