Comments Off on Fabula is a plantable pencil made out of recycled coffee, tea and flower petals

Fabula is an eco-friendly pencil created from recycled organic waste. Each one is created using tea-leaves and coffee grounds from cafes, together with petals discarded by florists. The materials are then processed to create the pencil’s sturdy body with its delicate grainy surface and slightly bigger volume that fits perfectly into the hand when writing. When it gets too short to use, the Fabula stub can be activated in water to plant a young goji berry plant, forest strawberry or tea plant. The new plant grows from a seed incorporated in the very top of the pencil. Get your own and support the project at Indiegogo . + Fabula Pencil on Indiegogo The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?
