Fabula is an eco-friendly pencil created from recycled organic waste. Each one is created using tea-leaves and coffee grounds from cafes, together with petals discarded by florists. The materials are then processed to create the pencil’s sturdy body with its delicate grainy surface and slightly bigger volume that fits perfectly into the hand when writing. When it gets too short to use, the Fabula stub can be activated in water to plant a young goji berry plant, forest strawberry or tea plant. The new plant grows from a seed incorporated in the very top of the pencil. Get your own and support the project at Indiegogo.
