This Pencils with seed pods for planting are a nice thought-provoking impulse to change the consciousness of our society, away from the throwaway society and towards sustainability, self-sufficiency and zero waste culture. Who doesn't know it: At some point, the pencil is simply too short for you to write well with it and then you throw it away, even though there is still some of the lead left.
Not so, however, with these pencils for planting. The capsules contain seeds for herbs or flowers, which you can then plant as soon as the pencil is small. Of course, the seed capsule is biodegradable and harmless. Just like the pencil itself. Strictly speaking, it is not a pencil at all. In fact, the lead is not made of lead, but of graphite and clay. Therefore, the plants and herbs that grow from the stub of the pencil are absolutely safe and edible.
How does the planting of the seed pod?
Planting the graphite pencil is quite simple. You fill a pot with potting soil and water it so that it is slightly moist. Then place the pencil stub at an angle and not too deep into the soil. The seed pod should just be covered by the soil. Now place the pot in a bright place in your home, but without direct sunlight. Make sure that the soil stays moist for the next few weeks until the seeds begin to germinate after one to four weeks.
Why the sustainable pencils with seed capsule?
The environmentally friendly pencils are of course made of natural materials. The wood of the sustainable graphite pencils for planting is of course from FSC-certified ecological forestry. The lead is made of graphite and clay. Due to the natural materials, the herbs springing from the seed pods are guaranteed safe, free of harmful substances and suitable for consumption.
Furthermore, the pencils are processed and packaged without plastic, so you can avoid unnecessary plastic waste.
