TreeHugger: Saving the World One Writing Implement at a Time

We have been taught the importance of recycling in order to reduce the trash filling up our landfills.  And while we may still have a long way to go before we can truly be called an Eco-friendly nation, it is quite refreshing to note that there are companies who are taking that extra step in making our country more earth conscious.

TreeHugger is definitely one of them.

TreeHugger GelFriend, pencil and highlighter
TreeHugger is an eco-friendly brand that aims to save the world one writing implement at a time.  Their products include:

Gel pens made from recycled carton and biodegradable plastic which they christened the GelFriend (get it?),

TreeHugger's GelFriend

Pencils made out of old newspapers.

My photo really doesn't do this justice.  But if you can hold the actual product, you can really see the lines of rolled up broadsheets that make up this pencil's body.

Highlighters also made from the same materials as their pens.

And that's not all, folks!  Proceeds from every product purchase goes to Haribon Foundation to aid in the restoration of our trees and forests.  How cool is that?  =)
