Each Remarkable™ Recycled Pencil is made from one recycled vending cup, contains no wood and writes, erases and sharpens like a traditional pencil.
Using recycled material from a vending cup saves it from going to landfill
Using alternatives to wood reduces the amount of trees required in pencil manufacturing
Their core activity is recycling; closing the loop; making a direct link between one recognisable waste product and one new, high-quality item, as long as it is financially and environmentally viable. Remarkable™ also sources materials from sustainably-managed land and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The Company ethos
Remarkable™'s ethos is to produce colourful, design-led environmental stationery that moves away from traditional concepts of “recycled” stationery. They take commonplace, everyday waste products and turn them into long-lasting, second-life practical stationery products, made out of easily identifiable recyclable items, such as polystyrene vending cups, rubber tyres, computer printer parts and recycled paper and board.
