#PlasticFreePondy: With this pen, you cut plastic waste and grow a tree

One plastic product we use and discard without much thought regularly is the ballpoint pen.

The focus of the UN Environment’s campaign for World Environment Day 2018 is reducing single-use and disposable plastic, which accounts for 50 per cent of plastic we use including plastic bags, containers, forks and spoons, cups, straws and sanitary pads.

PondyLive is highlighting individuals , non-profits and businesses who are beating plastic pollution in their own ways, big and small.  Don’t forget to share your story with us below in the comment section or on facebook or instagram with #PlasticFreePondy

Recently I have been using an eco-friendly pen called the Open. The pen is made of waste paper instead of plastic. It is a plantable pen that holds a seed at its tip which makes each pen equal to a tree.”
