Be green in 2022 with B2P ('Bottle to Pen') – The World's First Pen Made from Recycled Plastic Bottles
If you want to help reduce plastic waste and make a positive contribution to the environment, then pop a B2P ('bottle to pen') in your children's pencil case and grab a set for your home/office stationery supplies ready for the new year ahead.B2P is the world's first pen made from recycled plastic bottles. It even looks just like a plastic bottle, with grooves and ridges on the blue-tinted, see-through barrel – a thought-provoking visual reminder of the need to reduce, re-use and recycle to help preserve our world for the generations to come.
"We are very excited to launch B2P in Australia. We have so far recycled thousands of discarded plastic bottles and turned them into pens, helping to reduce landfill and prevent further environmental damage caused by the estimated 8 billion tonnes of global plastic now sitting unused on the planet," said Mr John Johnston, marketing manager, Pilot Pen Australia.
B2P is available in two varieties – Gel and Ballpoint. B2P Gel is made from 89 per cent recycled materials and features Pilot's much-loved, smooth-flowing G-2 Gel Ink, which glides satisfyingly across the page and gives a pleasantly polished appearance to your handwriting. Available in red, blue, black and green in a choice of fine or medium nibs.
B2P Grip Ballpoint is made from 86 per cent recycled materials and contains a resilient tungsten-carbide roller ball and high-performance oil-based ink to give a soft and fluid writing experience. Both pens are retractable with a quick click, for ease of use. Choose from red, black and blue ink colours in fine or extra fine nib sizes.
B2P is part of Pilot's new Begreen range – the world's first complete range of environmentally friendly writing implements. The perfect staple for home, school and work, it features ballpoints, gel pens, whiteboard markers, mechanical pencils, correction tape and refills – all made from 70 - 99.7 per cent recycled materials, in plastic-free packaging made from recyclable card.
"Our Begreen range is part of our commitment to a sustainable future and to help reduce landfill from single-use plastic. All Begreen pens are refillable, so you can re-use with no need to throw them away, and the range is priced in line with our standard range, so you don't need to pay more to make a sound sustainable purchase," said John.
B2P and the Begreen range is available in Coles, Officeworks, Big W and independent retailers throughout Australia. RRP: B2P Gel: $3.75; B2P Ballpoint, RRP $3.25.
