We’re Writing a Story For a Better Future


We’re making small changes that will have a BIG impact. Because we provide so many pencils to students and other consumers, we care about the impact they have on the environment. We take the following efforts to carefully manage the products and packaging so they have a more positive influence on our environment and in the communities in which we live and thrive:


  • Wood used to produce pencils are derived from waste from other products
  • Responsible sourcing of wood from partners who practice sustainable forestry management
PEFC Certified
Forest Stewardship Council


  • Move to materials with lower environmental impacts
  • Reduce excess packaging from factory to shelf
  • Find ways to use post-consumer and post-production waste in the packaging instead of virgin fibers



  • Partner with How2Recycle to clearly communicate recycling instructions to consumers
