Let the kids sharpen their sense of eco-friendliness.
You're going to buy your kid 7,298,384 pencils this school year, which is equivalent to the wood from all the trees in the Redwood Forest. (OK, that's a total exaggeration. But on your seventh trip to Target for more school supplies, it'll probably feel that way.) Save the earth and a trip to Target.
Earthwrite Recycled Pencils. Next time he's wasting time at the sharpener, grinding his pencil down to a nub and an eraser, you can at least feel good about the fact that he's not wasting another square foot of forest. These no. 2s are made from reclaimed wood, so they're totally eco-friendly. Plus, with the option of bulk shipping, you can order all 7,298,384 pencils at once—at less than a buck a dozen! Then maybe you can save those trips to Target for stuff you'll grind down to a nub. May we suggest a hot new lipstick and some Godiva chocolates?
