Pencils are made from 100% recycled paper
Bhoomi eco pencils are made from 100% recycled paper. Our pencils are safe to environment and biodegradable in nature. We source paper that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. Bhoomi eco pencils are made from 2b leads and are extra dark. We use paper rolling method with toxin-free glue. This process keeps lead at center and provides good grip and prevents from breaking. Our pencils are smooth in writing than average wooden pencils. We pledge to be completely eco-friendly and use biodegradable packing box to pack our pencils.
➢ Facts about Wooden pencils:
Every year 82,000 trees are cut down to produce more than 14 billion pencils in the world. Wooden pencils are the major reason for tree cutting and contribute to deforestation. Deforestation is the main cause for global warming and climate change. This increases our carbon footprint in the world. The wood is transported from forest to factory in big trucks which pollutes the air. The wood is treated with chemicals to get rid of bugs than cut into blocks and then slats. Many machines are required for this process which consumes huge amount of energy and electricity; again machines are used to stick two parts. This is called sandwich method which prevents lead to be perfectly at center. All this process leads to wastage of resources and creates a negative impact on environment.
