Based out of Montreal, this university student created clever zero waste packaging for pencils as part of a school project. Graphic Designer Laurence Gregoire conceived of Hexamine in two styles: colored and plain. Not unlike disposable chopsticks that come with takeout, the pencils are attached to each other and need to be snapped apart. This replaces conventional cardboard boxes pencils and similar writing implements usually are sold in.

In addition to coming in zero waste packaging, the pencils also have each of their colors written on the end of them in French. The plain lead pencils are also individually labelled. The eco-friendly snapping element adds a playful and tactile aspect to the product as well, making art more fun than ever.
