Upload a picture of yourself with your favorite Paper Mate Pen on Facebook to receive a FREE Paper Mate Pen (up to $2 value). This is until 60,000 supplies have been exhausted! Limit one per person.
My favorite Paper Mate pen is the new Biodegradable product line, which is the latest step in Paper Mate’s ongoing commitment to the environment. The components are made from plant-derived sugar. Once the biodegradable components are disassembled and placed in soil or home compost, they will naturally decompose in about a year. The products are also packaged in 100% PVC-free recyclable material.
Take the Paper Mate Plant-A-Pen Challenge:
- Find a spot in your yard and bury just the biodegradable components of the pen or mechanical pencil. Place a stick or garden marker next to the site so you can locate it late.
- Check on the components throughout the year. You can see a complete video of the process on PaperMate.com.
- When the year is up, dig to see what’s left of the pen components!
This would be a fun science project for the kids! Though, I would hate to waste a brand new pen or pencil so we will have to wait until we use ours!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Paper Mate and received the products necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
