Traditional wood-based pencils are the result of heavy deforestation and manufacturing. 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. Think about the number of trees that have been cut!
With every tree that is cut, global warming and climate change becomes a more shocking reality – massive droughts and floods, soaring temperatures, icecaps melting, rising seawater levels and entire forest ecosystems being destroyed. Next time you see a wood pencil – think!
Wood takes 13+ years to decompose. That’s a serious toll on the planet. Dharmee eco-friendly pencils take paper out of the landfills or recycling plants and puts it back into your hands – as a high-quality extra-dark 2B pencil! If you’re looking to go green at home or the office, then start with the pencils you’re using.
