Tate is our eco friendly newspaper waste pencils
We have started working with a sustainable product manufacture to supply us with a product that replaces new wood by recycling newspaper waste. These pencils are hard as wood and so this is us doing our bit to save the planet. Small changes and 100% wood-free.
Based on the material and process, these pencils may vary in surface design and colour.
Each pencil is handmade from newspaper waste
Approx 17cm long
Works just like a normal pencil, no special use
Made with waste that would have otherwise been put in landfill or burned
These pencils will come with a varied collection of especially sourced sustainable containers, including some glass silver top containers
