People are becoming aware of how products affect the environment and are looking at things that they can do to reduce their carbon footprint. From taking public transportation instead of driving to switching to a plant-based diet, there are significant changes being made. One area that is starting to take off considerably is using recycled items in everyday use, including office supplies.

Recycled office supplies, like eco-friendly pens, can make a difference in your personal goal of protecting our environment. Let’s go more in-depth into the benefits of recycled pens.

What Are the Characteristics of Recycled Pens?

Recycled pens can be made from recycled plastic, post-consumer material, or even recycled electronics. In some cases, the pens can also be manufactured to be biodegradable. You still have many of the same options, however, when it comes to pen type. You can still get recycled ballpoint pens, packs of assorted recycled pens with a variety of colors, recycled retractable pens, and more made from these environmentally conscious materials. These eco-friendly pens have all of the great features you would expect from non-recycled pens, with the added bonus of being more sustainable.

What Are the Benefits of Recycled Pens?

Recycled pens give consumers an environmentally friendly option for their writing implements. Additionally, recycled pens help to reduce waste. When electronics and other items are thrown away, their plastic and metal components will not degrade and will wind up contributing to landfills or potentially disturbing wildlife ecosystems. Making pens out of these discarded items helps reduce this waste and eliminate single-use plastic, leaving you with a great pen that you can feel good about.

Using recycled ink pens makes it easy to make a huge difference to the environment in a small way. These eco-friendly pens often feature long lasting or refillable ink supplies so that you can hold on to your pen as long as possible. The longevity of these pens helps not only the earth, but your wallet too! Additionally, recycled pens are the same quality as non-recycled pens, so you won’t have to sacrifice writing quality at all when you use eco-friendly pens.

What Types of Items Are Recycled into Recycled Pens?

There are plenty of materials that are used to create recycled ink pens, so it’s important to think about your environmental goals when you’re browsing through this pen variety. Recycled pens can be made from recycled plastic bottles, such as water bottles or soda bottles. These pens can also be made from other single-use plastics such as straws and old plastic storage containers.

Recycled pens can also be made from recycled newspaper, with just one sheet of newspaper potentially creating the pen body for three pens. Corn starch plastic is another common material used to create pens, and these are biodegradable, generally decomposing in roughly a year. Post-consumer electronics, such as old phones or stereo systems, are also occasionally used to create these pens. Keep in mind that after using your recycled pens, they should be properly disposed of, recycled, or refilled if possible.
