These awesome colour pencils available on LBB that are more or less as good as the Faber-Castell ones and without a doubt, much more eco-friendly.

    Good Stuff, this. Really. The brand that makes these awesome pens is named after its pens' quality. A thick gel pen that is as fluid in its writing as it is regal to hold, the body is made from ABS and Metal. You will love to put pen to paper when you hold these big boys as the gel dries up quick and erases all possibilities of smudging. We suggest you go old fashion and have the pen clips tugged to your shirt pockets for a more classy feel.

    Remember those erasers you'd have on your pencil heads? They were nice and easy to use and also the fragrance that wafted out from those erasers was a treat. Now, we have pencils from Notex that instead of eraser heads, have little containers that come with plantable seeds within. You read that right. Once you're done using the pencil, all you got to do is cut open the top of the newspaper covered pencil and plant the seeds in your area of choice. These pencils have the seeds they contain named on their coverings so that you know the one you're getting.

    Picture a newspaper with lead protruding out of it. That's what these pencils from Rescript look like. Black and white, these pencils have a HB lead which means the lead in these won't just get dislodged them moment this pencil touches paper. Looking like the New York Times just wrapped itself around a pencil, the outer recycled paper covering adds a more natural feel to these writing instruments. Available in a pack of 10, you'd love these.
