The We Are The World Blogfest is the right place to share and encourage recycling. As in the previous post about a Wall of Kindness Recycling Raddi and Composting to a Community fridge this one too aims to help us all.
The Pencil Of The Future Is Not Made From Trees and I want to encourage and recommend a few options that can help you make the change to save trees.
About 15-20 billion pencils are made each year. So if a 60-foot tall tree, 3-4 feet in width were used in making the pencil, it would take about 60,000 of those trees. Recycled pencils are set out to replace their wooden counterparts and are usually made of old newspapers that have been turned into workable mulch.
These have a tinge of eco-friendliness along with a desi touch. They are eco-friendly stationery products in bulk from files and folders to recycled paper pencils.
Plantcils range from HB pencils, colour pencils, extra dark, rainbow pencils which give out rainbow coloured shavings. The pencils can also be customised.
MyraGreens are revolutionizing the way that we make one of the world’s most commonly used writing utensils – and teaching young minds about sustainability in the process.
Inputs from The Better Indian & The News Minute articles.
GoGrameen, Stationery Mela, Plantcil & MyraGreens are few of the companies driving this change.
Go on then, check them out, I am sure you need new pencils 🙂
Once again, here are the guidelines for #WATWB
1. Keep your post to Below 500 words, as much as possible.
2. Link to a human news story on your blog, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Paste in an excerpt and tell us why it touched you. The Link is important, because it actually makes us look through news to find the positive ones to post.
3. No story is too big or small, as long as it Goes Beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
4. Place the WE ARE THE WORLD badge or banner on your Post and your Sidebar. Some of you have already done so, this is just a gentle reminder for the others.
5.Help us spread the word on social media. Feel free to tweet, share using the #WATWB hastag to help us trend!
Tweets, Facebook shares, Pins, Instagram, G+ shares using the #WATWB hashtag through the month most welcome. We’ll try and follow and share all those who post on the #WATWB hashtag, and we encourage you to do the same.
