While we care about handwritten notes, as an eco enthusiast we wanted to know if there could be any alternatives for plastic pens. During my trip to Kerala i've come across these cute pens made out of paper and had a seed at the end of the pen which when you are done with the pen can sow the pen and give life to a pretty little plant. While they do have a plastic refill in them, they are more affordable than ink pens and significantly less footprint than plastic pens.
