​The Enviro-group Sustainability: Plantable Pens

Did you know that New Zealanders use around 60 million pens per year? That's about 360 tonnes of plastic waste going straight to the landfill each year.

But what’s the solution? … Plantable Pens fromGoEco. When you have finished using these pens, simply plant them into some soil, nurture it like you would any seedling, and plants will grow. Choose between Lavender, Mint, Poppies or Tomato seeds.

We think this is innovative thinking and a novelty Christmas gift idea. “Plant a pen and help save our planet”
