"These fine art eco sketching pencils, with a hexagonal barrel and unpainted natural finish, are made using high quality artist-grade graphite, a naturally occurring substance sourced from Sri Lanka. The wood casing is Californian Incense Cedar wood from forests accredited to the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI).
To limit waste, the packaging is made from recycled paper and is 100% recyclable. You can also remove the perforated hanging tag and re-use the pack to store the pencils when not in use.
We work hard to protect the planet and were awarded the Queen’s award for sustainable development for commitment to the environment. We developed a unique eco friendly process, using UV light, to coat the barrels of our pencils thereby avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and solvents. And, when we built our new factory in Lillyhall we incorporated a number of eco-friendly features such as storing and re-using rainwater and using waste wood chippings created in the manufacturing process to heat the factory, our offices also feature motion sensor lighting in order to save energy."
So I'll basically be saving the planet, one drawing at a time..
