Paper Mate: Biodegradable Pens & Pencils


School just started for my kids and you know what that means, time to buy all of their school supplies for the year. However, I've never really thought about the effect all these school supplies have on Mother Earth.

As a family, we try our best to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle. I was really excited to hear that Paper Mate recently launched their new line of eco-friendly writing utensils, which include biodegradable pens and mechanical pencils.

I received both to review. They look great and are good for the world. I'm loving that!

My kids and I were really excited to be a part of the Plant-A-Pen Challenge. We planted a pen and pencil in our front yard and added colorful garden markers. My kids are very anxious to see what will happen when we dig them both up over time. This was a fun family activity that got my kids thinking about taking better care of the Earth and the effect products have on our precious environment.

I'm so thrilled Paper Mate has taken action to help make this world a better place for my children!

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Paper Mate and received the products necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate."
