If you love writing with a pencil, consider upgrading your writing utensil to something even greener. First, a wood or recycled composite pencil is far better than a plastic mechanical pencil. Second, did you know you can upgrade your wooden pencil to help get your garden growing? New “plantable” pencils are embedded with seeds that are ready to plant when your pencil is shaved down to a stub. Just insert the stub into soil and watch herbs, flowers and vegetables come to life in your garden. Many brands and varieties are in stores now.
