The Sprout Pencil Will Grow a Plant Once You're Done With It

Sprout pencils offer users an eco-friendly reward once they have carved their pencil down to a stub. At the top of each Sprout pencil lies a seed that can grow into a full-fledged plant with a little love. Customers have the choice of herb, vegetable and flower seeds to be embedded in their pencil, and the seeds usually sprout in about a week after planting.

The seed capsule is water-activated, so don't chew on the end of this pencil or else you might end up gardening your mouth. The pencil stub can be thrown out or used as a labeled planting marker.

The Sprout pencil is getting off the ground with a Kickstarter campaign, so, if you like the idea, give the creators some support. Stats for Eco-Friendly Plantable Pencils Trending: Older & Warm
