Like the crosswords? We have good news for you! Now you can write, mark, check-off, notate, scribble and doodle with pencils made from your morning paper.

Extra, Extra! Read All About it!



Like the crosswords? Do you underline phrases and articles of interest when you read the paper? Are you a reuse/recycling maniac? If you answered yes to any of these three questions or any others I should have thought of, I have good news for you! Now you can write, mark, check-off, notate, scribble and doodle with pencils made from your morning paper.



You can get these utilitarian looking ones at Green Depot. They come in a cool recycled pencil case too! Take that, Mrs. Gordon back in 2nd grade!



Or if you want colors, try out these colorful numbers 2 pencils from Tree Smart. With erasers, too! The print’s still visible, and the oils from your hands add to the patina!



Want even more color? Check out these pencils from OBon. All of these pencils can be sharpened in a regular pencil sharpener, are less breakable, and last longer than a regular pencil.

So when you’re done with the crossword, roll that paper up and put a lead in it!

    I love this idea! My little brother brought one home from school a couple years ago. A recycling company brought them for all the kids to teach them about the importance of recycling.
