Pens Made from Recycled Water Bottles

by Cindy Pantea

Know that you are doing something good when you recycle!

Many companies are finding ways to recycle, reuse and repurpose. Those are the three Rs that we love to hear, say and read about. And, they are coming out with environmentally friendly or green product lines for consumers.

Keep Akron Beautiful is an affiliate of Keep American Beautiful, Inc.One green product that Keep Akron Beautiful discovered is a line of ink pens from Pilot, and yes, if you look closely on the scan below, you will see a logo you recognize. It was in a 2008 press release, Pilot BeGreen announced they were an official sponsor of Keep America Beautiful, our affiliate.

Having tried this green product (thanks for sharing with us, Jacqui), we thought we would share with you what we like about them — we like that they:

  1. Are made from recycled plastic bottles.
  2. Are refillable.
  3. Cost the same as Pilot’s non-recycled pens.
  4. Write fabulously with gel ink.
  5. Fit nicely in your hand as you use them.
  6. Are cute…they look like plastic bottles!

Kudos, Pilot BeGreen.

And, of course, thank YOU for recycling your plastic bottles!
