Real writers understand the importance of a pencil. No keyboards or even the latest touchscreen devices can provide the same satisfaction as writing on paper with an old school pencil. They may be old fashioned but we need more pencils, just maybe with some extra features.
So we bring you the all new and unique Sprout Pencils. These pencils are similar to a regular pencil, however they come with a beautiful surprise. The wood surrounding the graphite is made of scented cedar wood, while the tip of the pencil features three live seeds that can be planted in a pot. When you come to the end of the working pencil and it’s just a stub, plant it instead of throwing it away.
These seeds will let you grow some of your favorite herbs, and will start sprouting as soon as water comes in contact with them, giving your unusable pencil stub a new lease – or should that be leaf?- of life all round. Sprout Pencils will cost you $33 for a set of 8 pencils with 8 different herbs. [Via Coolest-Gadgets]
