Big fat thank you to @DerwentPencils for posting these goodies all the way to Paris for me #essentials #homecomforts #luckylady x
fine art eco sketching pencils, with a hexagonal barrel and unpainted
natural finish, are made using high quality artist-grade graphite, a
naturally occurring substance sourced from Sri Lanka. The wood casing
is Californian Incense Cedar wood from forests accredited to the
Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI).
To limit waste, the
packaging is made from recycled paper and is 100% recyclable. You can
also remove the perforated hanging tag and re-use the pack to store the
pencils when not in use.
We work hard to protect the planet and
were awarded the Queen’s award for sustainable development for
commitment to the environment. We developed a unique eco friendly
process, using UV light, to coat the barrels of our pencils thereby
avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and solvents. And, when we built
our new factory in Lillyhall we incorporated a number of eco-friendly
features such as storing and re-using rainwater and using waste wood
chippings created in the manufacturing process to heat the factory, our
offices also feature motion sensor lighting in order to save energy."
So I'll basically be saving the planet, one drawing at a time..
