Cebu-based entrepreneur sell pencils that grow into plants

Cebu, Philippines - Used wooden pencils can now turn back into plants, instead of throwing away. Eco Hub Cebu-based is making this possible, by selling a sustainable pencils - thanks to Sprout World. 



The product is the same as the regular pencil that you are using, except that its tail end is a gelatin capsule that contains seed capsule on one end instead of an eraser. The capsule contains one several varieties of plants - and once the writing end of the pencil is all used up, you can simply stick the capsule end in moist soil.

The seed is expected to germinate within 1 to 3 weeks. The capsule of each pencil are preservative-free, non-genetically modified organism (GMO) allergen-free, and gluten-free.

The seed is come from several varieties of plants - herbs like basil or rosemary, flowers like roses, vegetables like tomato,sunflower,carrot or some other fastest growing plant.

The idea is to inspire people to think more about where the products come from and what happens when they're no longer useful.
