Ticonderoga Renew - Pencils from Tires !

Ticonderoga's Renew pencils have cases made from 30 % recycled tires instead of cedar or some other wood. " ... made from a unique, patented process using the rubber compound from recycled tires. ... ".

The packaging notes the incredible number of tires estimated to be thrown away daily ... it is nice to see these being used instead of trees ... reduce, reuse, recycle!

In keeping with the green themes the packaging is made with " ... 100% reclaimed fiber with 35% minimum post-consumer waste ... "
