A pen that looks cute, works well & isn’t harmful to the environment—what more could you want?!

I found these pens after a (very long) hunt for pens that were indeed sustainable rather than marked 'sustainable' as a way to mask excessive plastic use. These were the most conscious and ethical ones I could find!

I love the way that the pens were packaged and how it was eco-friendly!! I also loved the bag that came with the pens as I can always reuse it in a different way if they are not holding pens :))

No matter where I'm using my Earth Pens (and Clicker Pens) I always get asked where they are from and how my friends can get their hands on some! They are cute, they write well and they love the environment!

I love the innovation that these pens provide. It's often the little things in our lives/work day that we overlook that actually have such a big impact on the environment. So great job starting the conversation and leading change in the stationary industry.
I also love that you include the education for consumers how to properly dispose of their pens and not just throw the whole thing in the bin.
My only suggestion for improvement is: I find that over time the plastic top of the clicker pen seperates (pushes up) when I’m writing which is a bit annoying. Also, one of the pens in my sample pack is faulty (it doesn’t write) I think the roller ball is jammed or something. 🙁Response from Lewis @ eco pen club: Hey Nancy! This is great feedback and so sorry for the issue! We've made a change to our new batch of clicker pens that will make stop plastic top separating issue. When we get the new batch, we will send you some more pens free of charge 🙂
Why eco-friendly pens
Less plastic, less waste
Over 2 BILLION disposable pens are sold each year, mostly ending up in landfill as they aren't easily recyclable.
The power of paper
Our pens are made with compostable and easily recyclable materials, which can go in household the recycling.
Better than plastic
Our pens will write better and last longer. If you're not happy, you get 100% money-back guarantee.
Give back, 10 times
Your order is entirely carbon positive, by funding renewable energy projects in developing countries.
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.
Currently all international deliveries are on hold until further notice. All domestic Australia deliveries are suffering slight delays but should be with you within 3-5 working days. For the latest information on delivery times from Auspost, please click this link.
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!
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 packaged entirely plastic-free and in the most eco-friendly way:
- Our envelopes are made from recycled paper
- The tape we use is adhesive kraft paper
- All marketing materials are printed on recycled paper
- The pens are packed in a custom printed linen bag (it’s one of the most sustainable materials)
- For the majority of our orders, we send through Sendle, who are carbon-neutral
- All ink we use is soy-based

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.

Our aim is for our products to be as eco-friendly as possible with as little plastic as possible. Plastic is hard to avoid, especially for pens. So in our best efforts to do the right thing, we did some research on plastics. We found that ‘biodegradable’ or ‘bioplastics’ (a plant-based PLA plastic) aren’t actually what they claim up to be and cause more damage than you think. See below why we chose to use normal, easily recyclable plastics:
- Traditional plastics are easy to recycle and sort compared to a plant-based one
- Plant-based plastics don’t decompose in a landfill, only in very specific conditions like high temperatures or UV exposure (like the sea)
- Plant-based plastics need UV light to degrade, which breaks down into microplastics, which end up in our oceans, soil and food
Hey! we're Lewis & Tristan!
eco pen club was born out of the desire to not just take from our world, but give back. Seeing first-hand the devastation climate change can affect Australia with the 19/20 bushfires, we decided to combine forces and pursue our passion to build a social enterprise. Why pens? as self-confessed stationery nerds and full-time creatives, starting a brand around tools for organisation, ideas and art seemed like the obvious choice!
Our mission is to leave the world in a better way than we entered it, and we're going further than replacing toxic plastic pens with compostable ones. We've partnered with One Tree Planted to donate an entire tree for every 10 pens sold - that's way over 1000x the amount we use. On top of that we also carbon offset our employees in partnership with Ecologi, to ensure we stay completely carbon positive.
As both professional creatives, Lewis a Design Consultant for banking & farming, and Tristan running his own film production company, these self-confessed stationery nerds felt their efforts to help reduce plastic pen waste is something close to either heart and where they can make the most difference.
