What happens when you finish using your pencils, and they have been sharpened and used to a point where it is just too short for you to grasp it with your fingers? Well, there is still some hope yet – in the form of the £21.99 Plant Pencils. “Verbs to herbs” would be the operative keyword here, as it would mean you discarded pencil stubs can be transformed to help your favourite herbs grow. Boasting of an innovative water-activated seed capsule located in the tip, it is made out of sustainably harvested (and exquisitely scented) cedar wood. The pencil tip itself also doubles up as a useful labelled plant marker. Now this is definitely an eco-friendly idea which is worth looking into, don’t you think so?
