The eco-friendly coffee clay pencil is a unique product that was created to make use of coffee grounds, which usually end up in the trash. In South Korea, huge amounts of these leftovers-as much as 150,000 tons-are wasted every day. However, thanks to an ingenious conversion of these grounds into pencils, they can now regain a second life.
The proper thickness and natural surface texture of the pencils guarantees stable and precise writing. In addition, when the pencil is held in the hand, it absorbs sweat, and when not in use, it releases moisture into the air. Its thicker design also allows it to be held comfortably when writing or drawing, providing greater control and precision.
The pencils are made of materials that are completely harmless to the environment and our bodies. Once disposed of in the ground, they can biodegrade and turn into natural compost. They do not contain any harmful chemicals, and their production is based only on plant extracts, which are safe for health. The pencils are also KC safety certified, which proves their high quality and compliance with strict standards.
