BioPencil is a 100% eco-friendly pencil made from algae instead of wood, and at one end of the pencil there is a capsule containing aguaymanto (peruvian cherry) seeds. this means that when you have finished using your pencil, the seeds can be planted in a flowerpot, and you will have planted a tree!
because we are committed to protecting and conserving the environment, we focus on every aspect of the raw material and use of our pencils, including the shavings. this approach is what sets us apart from traditional wooden pencils: our mission is to encourage writing, planting, conservation and reforestation.
The shavings produced during use of the BioPencil are not disposable; on the contrary, they can be used as a skin moisturizer. in this way, you can feel the benefits produced by contact between algae and the skin. so, don’t throw away your algae pencil shavings!
