As time goes on, it seems that we as people become more wasteful. With new technologies leaving our gadgets outdated, we feel the need to constantly upgrade. This is exactly why we need to focus on being more eco-friendly in our everyday lives. Doing small things might not undo the damage we’ve caused to the environment, but every little bit helps. Take, for instance, these Paper Pens.
Ideally, we should be able to buy one or two pens, then just refill them as they run out of ink. Unfortunately, they have a way of getting lost, or never returned after you’ve loaned them to someone. You might not think that the 20-pack of plastic pens has much of an effect on the environment, but it does add up. That’s why these Paper Pens are such a great idea. Each is hand-crafted from a piece of scrap paper. This is recycling in its most simple form. Sure, that paper isn’t going to last forever, but there’s a good chance you’ll lose the pen before you need to replace it. The price of $5.52 a pen makes me think it would be a a better idea just to make them yourself.
