Pilot Begreen Recycled Eco-Friendly Pens

We all want to be more environmentally friendly to help protect our planet as much as possible for future generations.  In 2017, the global pen market was valued at approximately 15 billion U.S. dollars and is forecast to reach a value of 19 billion U.S. dollars by 2025.

As we discussed in How Do You Recycle Ink pens recycling pens is very difficult to do. So, when it comes to ink pens one of the best ways to reduce your environmental footprint is to buy recycled pens. However, this is easier said than done as most manufacturers do not make pens from recycled materials because they are a lot more expensive to produce.

Pilot Begreen

One manufacturer has stepped up to the challenge and this is Pilot Pens with their BeGreeN range of recycled pens. The BeGreeN range (no, we don’t know why the “n” is capitalized) is made from recycled plastics but look and function just like standard Pilot pens and mechanical pencils. According to the company, the percentage of recycled materials in pens is calculated by the weight, excluding replaceable parts such as ink cartridges or pencil lead.
