On the mark


All cats are grey in the dark. Colors help us to remember things – at school, in the office, at home and when we study.

The proof is in the glow of the 35 billion marker pens that are thrown away each year. Time to give the plastic marker a more eco-friendly existence, at least according to the design firm responsible for developing the world’s first fully biodegradable marker pen.

The real highlight: the stylish barrel, made from wood, bioplastic or aluminum, can be used indefinitely, and the pen’s internal components – comprising natural fibers and non-toxic water-based ink – easily replaced.

A colorful addition to your pencil case that need never be thrown away!

We say: full marks.
