In our house we go through an extraordinary amount of pens, pencils, crayons and felt tips, as do a lot of you I’m sure. I don’t understand what happens to them! I always feel at bit guilty throwing away broken pens and buying more and more…which is why I was happy to discover Remarkable, a UK-based eco factory who make recycled pens, pencils and stationery. The pencils we got were CD cases or possibly coat hangers in their previous life. How cool is that? They are not that much more expensive than normal pencils and it’s fun to explain to my kids that they are using a recycled coat hanger to draw with!
