Going Green – Saving the Planet One Pen at a Time

30Jul08

It’s no secret. Pick up any newspaper or tune in to any news broadcast. All you hear about is Global Warming. There is a movement toward alternatives to Petroleum.

  Now look around at all of those Plastic Disposable Pens you have been using. Just where do you think that plastic comes from? If you guessed Petroleum you are correct. You don’t win anything for being correct, as a matter of fact, you lose.

  I read one report that said Americans throw out 1.6 Billion of these pens each year. Yes, that’s Billions with a B. Feeling pretty guilty now? Wondering what you can do to help solve the problem? Well, I just happen to have a solution for you (what a coincidence huh?).  Here it is. Handmade Wooden Pens

  A simple, yet elegant solution to the problem. Wood as a renewable resource is preferable for the body of the pen. The pen should last a lifetime, as the refills are replaceable.

  The Plastics can’t compete with wood when it comes to beauty and warmth. The first time you pick up a wooden pen you will notice the feel of the wood. It just feels right.

And for those who say” I don’t use nice pens because I loose them all of the time”, I say you loose them all of the time because the pens you use are just crappy plastic throw aways that you couldn’t care less about. People who use my pens tell me they quickly get used to keeping track of their pen just as they would with any of their other belongings, and not one of them has lost a pen yet. Another thing that helps is to have your name engraved on your pen.

One other nice thing about wooden pens, is that in addition to text, you can laser engrave some pretty detailed carvings.
