14 billion wooden pencils are made all over the world each year. One tree can produce 170,000 pencils on an average which adds up to 82,000 trees that are cut every year
Research shows that recycling used paper could save 41,000 trees per year and would keep 6 million tons of waste out of landfills. Recycling one ton of paper saves 20 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, three cubic yards of landfill space, 60 pounds of air pollutants and saves enough energy to power an average home for 6 months.
A minimum of 20 pencils can be manufactured by using a single newspaper that we read daily. Thus, we found our way of contributing towards nature by manufacturing products made from waste paper. India has 1.5 million schools and students above 315 million. India has the largest student population in the world. In this age of digital era writing instruments have not lost their demand and continue to grow every year. Pencils continue to be important element in every student’s life. Indian schools have made the use of pencils compulsory till 4th standard. The writing instrument industry in India is estimated at 2600 crores rupees which is huge. This industry continues to grow each year at a healthy rate.
Greencils are made from 100% recycled paper. Greencils are safe to environment and biodegradable in nature. We source paper that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. Greencils are made from high quality leads and are extra dark. We use paper rolling method with toxin free glue. This process keeps lead at center and provides good grip and prevents from breaking. Greencils are smooth in writing than average wooden pencils. We pledge to be completely eco-friendly and use biodegradable packing box to pack our pencils.
