SproutWorld is a Danish B Corp certified company behind the world’s only plantable pencil and makeup pencil.

The Sprout pencil has a seed inside. When it’s too short to write with, the pencil can be planted and will grow into a lovely plant like a flower, a herb, a vegetable or a tree.

The seed capsule is water activated. The first few times you water the pot with your planted pencil, the capsule starts the seed’s germination.

Rethink – reuse!

SproutWorld has specialized in developing sustainable products with a second life. Plant your pencil stub when it is too short to write or color with – and watch it grow into herbs, flowers or vegetables. Join their mission to focus on waste reduction, recycling – and innovation. Note that all products can be customized with your logo or special message.

SproutWorld has sold over 70 million plantable pencils in more than 80 countries. Customers like Coca Cola, Disney, Marriott, Save the Children, Michelle Obama and Richard Branson have used Sprout pencils as green giveaways or merchandise.
