Green Promotional Items is always on the hunt for great eco-friendly companies, practices and products. Pilot has been a leader in producing recycled pens and other writing tools, but this may be their best yet – the B2P line of pens!
From Amy LaPlante, Associate Channel Manager, Pilot Corporation of America:
You may not think that a pen is capable of saving the planet, but at Pilot®, we believe that even very little things can make a big impact. Take our B2P gel roller or ball point pen – for every two pens made, there’s one less plastic water bottle headed to a landfill. With over 2,500,000 plastic drinking bottles sent to landfills each hour, that’s a lot of pens!
For years Pilot® has been crafting and selling recycled writing instruments, but not until the B2P pen arrived on the scene has there been such a splash. The shape of the pen barrel mimics that of a water bottle, and even the color, a translucent blue, invites the comparison. Refreshing AND revolutionary? We’ll take it!
We were honored by consumer reactions to our B2P. Check out Jennifer’s review for example: “I teach in a 3rd grade classroom. We have been studying recycling and how to reduce our impact on the environment. We were very excited to find your Bottle2Pen products. We have purchased the pens and the students are using them.”
The recycled B2P gel roller doesn’t skimp on quality, so it’s good for you and for the planet – it uses the same gel ink refill found in America’s No. 1 selling gel ink pen, the Pilot G2, and is available in black, blue or red ink, with purple and green varieties being released in 2013. The B2P ball point is available in black, blue, red, green and purple and is made right at the Pilot® manufacturing headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida.
The recycling process is central to the creation of these pens. First, plastic is collected and sorted. It is then shredded into tiny bits. The plastic is then melted and shaped into pellets, so that it can be ready to take its new form. For Pilot®, that means a new B2P pen that strikes a balance between quality and sustainability. The story is a simple one, but it resonates with people of all ages.
At Pilot® we’re not only chanting “power to the pen!” but “power to the planet” too! Writing can be fashionable AND eco-friendly. Why not go a little green with us?
