About our impact

Back to help centre
  • The ink we use in our pens and the ink we use to print on the kraft paper is non-toxic and soy-based. This sustainable ink has little to no traces of petroleum in so it’s very easy to separate during the recycling process.

  • We’ve partnered with some great initiatives to give back more than we take. We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to help reforestation efforts of the Australian bushfires. If you’d like to help this cause, please donate here. We also offset our carbon to make us a carbon positive company- we do this through Offset Earth, where we pay a monthly fee to support initiatives that reduce carbon emissions. If you’d like to offset your emissions, please visit this site.

  • We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to help with reforestation efforts for the Australian bushfires. Every month, we take count of how many packs sold and donate the equivalent in $USD. So if we sell 500 10-packs of pens this month, that’s 500 trees planted!

  • Our two main impact partners are Offset Earth and One Tree Planted. We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to help reforestation efforts of the Australian bushfires and Offset Earth to offset our carbon, making us a carbon positive company.

  • FSC means Forest Stewardship Council. This is a governing body that ensures products that are manufactured with trees, are from responsibly sourced locations. Our factory only uses FSC certified trees. For more information on FSC, see their website.

  • Our pens are very eco-friendly! The Clicker pens are 50% less plastic than traditional pens and the Earth pen is a whopping 85% less plastic. The paper used is from a Forest Stewardship Council certified factory and the majority of our paper used is recycled. The very small percentage of plastic we use in our pens is easily recyclable (unlike many bioplastics). On top of that, we plant an entire tree for every pack sold and offset more carbon than we emit.

    For more information, see our why paper pens page.

     

  • We offset our carbon in partnership with Offset Earth. Every month, we calculate the emissions we generate and offset that by investing in many emission-reducing projects. You can see how much carbon we’ve reduced and the projects we’ve funded by visiting our Offset Earth profile page.
