Traditional wood-based pencils result in heavy deforestation and use energy-intensive manufacturing processes. Research suggests, a 20-foot Pine tree needs to be cut down to make 2500 pencils; and there are over 14 billion pencils produced worldwide every year. Huge number of trees are cut down every year to make pencils.
Trees are our best resources to fight against global warming and climate change. With every tree that is cut, global warming and climate change becomes a more shocking reality resulting in massive droughts and floods, soaring temperatures, icecaps melting, rising seawater levels and entire forest ecosystems being destroyed. Next time you plan to use a wood pencil – avoid it!
