People are making such an effort to lead healthier, environmentally friendly lifestyles nowadays that companies and designers are starting to focus on the little things to help them along the way; the latest product being the Eco Highlighters. Unlike standard highlighters that have fiber tips and plastic bodies, the Eco Highlighters are more like lead pencils.

Designed by Stubby Pencil Studio, a company based in Portland, Oregon, that concentrates on creating eco products for creative kids, the Eco Highlighters may yield a different texture, but the colors are the same. Available in neon yellow, green, orange, pink and blue, the Eco Highlighters also do away with ink solvents and volatile organic compounds. Just like pencils, they can be sharpened with a jumbo pencil sharpener and they don't bleed through the page.
