Smencils Prove That Even Pencils Can Be Green

By Alexander Selkirk

Smencils are an exceptionally “green” alternative to standard pencils. The company touts that one cedar tree will make 172,000 standard, old-fashioned wooden pencils. Not to be outdone, 172,000 Smencils only require 430 newspapers! Just recycling one single run of the Sunday New York Times will save an astonishing 75,000 full trees!

But the environmental conservation work does not stop there. The containers that Smencils are packaged in are made of a corn-based plastic which is completely biodegradable. Even the erasers on the tip of the pencils are environmentally friendly.

Is that enough to make you want to buy a Smencil over a regular #2 pencil? It should be, but there is one huge extra benefit of this wonderful product: They smell divine! That’s right, Smencils are soaked in intense aromatics that permeate the pencil through and through. This creates a “Smelly Pencil” that kids will clamor for. Even sharpening them become fun as the shavings will give off a fabulous smell.

The smells are amazing! You may choose from one of the ten standard smells, or seek the limited holiday or Valentine’s Day Smencils. These smelly pencils are guaranteed to please!

The fun does not stop there! Many people do not use pencils anymore, but they are in luck! The same process is used to make Smens. “Smelly Pens” come in flavors like Mocha, Aloha, Creamsicle, Ninja Berry, Red Licorice, Passion Fruit, Mystery Scent, Black Licorice, Pink Lemonade, and Banana Fo Fana. Smens have completely different smells than Smencils but will be just as entertaining!

These are great gift ideas. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Back-to-School and teacher gifts are made very easy with a few of these delectible gifts! Don’t for a minute think that these are just for kids. Take a good whiff of your favorite flavors and collect some extras for yourself!
