I’m very excited to kick-off the Earth Day Event with a review and very generous giveaway from a fantastic company. Being an education major, I’m in love with writing utensils. I carry around several different pencils and pens to my classes. I love checking out new ones and putting them to the test in my classes. Pentel has made the commitment to produce high quality products that are better for the environment with their Recycology writing utensils. Each Recycology product is made from a minimum of 50% and up to 100% of recycled product! Plus, they didn’t make those products any higher priced than their regular products! How awesome is that?
I received a generous supply of these Recycology products to try out. I was very impressed with the selection and quality of the utensils. I really like the .e-sharp pencil which is made of 72% recycled plastic! It has a very nice grip (comfy for taking lots of notes in a fast lecture) and it comes in pretty colors. I was very impressed with the Super Hi-Polymer Lead which is 100% recycled plastic! It writes smoothly and doesn’t smear away like some lead does. I’m also in love with the EnerGel Liquid Gel Pens. They also feature a nice gripper and write nicely. I could grade papers with these pens all night if I had to.
Pentel was able to strike a wonderful balance between eco-friendly and high quality with the Recycology products. I was surprised to learn that they even have 55% recycled plastic dry erase markers and 54% post consumer recycled plastic retractable & refillable highlighters! Pentel is my new favorite brand of writing utensils for sure. I’m sure they will be getting lots of my money in the future! Haha!
