The Sprout pencil by Plant Your Own Pencil is a creative writing tool that has a secondary purpose after its life as a desk accessory has come to an end. Inside the base of the pencil is a seed capsule that will grow into a garden of fresh herbs, flowers or vegetables if you add a little bit of water.
These clever Sprout pencils are a great marketing method to keep unnecessary garbage, like pencil stubs, out of landfills. The Sprout pencil comes with an ingenious black capped bottom that conceals a tiny plant seed ready for you to grow when your pencil is no longer usable. Each wooden pencil features the name of the embedded plant seed written along the side. When you put this pencil into a pot of soil bottom-up, the label will become the plant's label marker. Wait a couple of days and watch your pencil turn into a full-blown garden.
