Sprout is the Danish company behind the original plantable pencil. Each Sprout pencil is equipped with a biodegradable seed capsule containing a coveted seed variety. When the pencil is too short to write, simply turn it upside down and plant the stump. If you water it regularly, you’ll see the pencil transform into a plant.
By planting a Sprout pencil instead of throwing it out, you can make sustainability a lesson for children. Watching a plant grow from the pencil can inspire them and help them make sustainable choices in their daily lives.
