The one hundred percent environmentally friendly pencil can be potted. It is made of birch wood and has at its end a biodegradable capsule, which contains GM-free seeds that sprout on contact with water. To start this process is easy: as soon as the pencil has become too short and therefore unusable, you can plant it into a flower pot, water it and expose it to the sunlight. Within a few weeks first sprouts start to grow.

The following plants are available:

• Basil
• Sunflower
• Daisy
• Forget-me-not
• Cherry tomato

Price: € 2,50
