We all know flowers are a must on Valentine’s Day. Why not hand over a bouquet of love pencils and grow your own? Is there a better way this year to say “I love you” than with both flowers and a low carbon footprint?

Sprout World, the company behind the world’s only plantable pencil, offers a unique alternative if you are looking for an ecofriendly gift that is kind to the planet and doesn’t quickly wilt.

You simply plant the Sprout pencil with the capsule down, when it’s too short to write with. This way you’ll give new life to waste.

A bouquet of cut flowers will wilt within a week or two. Sprout pencils are long lasting. Write with them for some months, then plant them and enjoy your fresh herbs or flowers. Plus, buying a traditional flower bouquet is playing it safe. What you see, is what you get. Sprout pencils are the opposite. They look like normal pencils, but they’re not. They turn into herbs and flowers. A Sprout pencil is a symbol of sustainability. It makes you consider what else you can do to make a positive impact on the planet.

In time for Valentine’s,

Sprout World has a special LOVE Edition pack with five Sprout pencils engraved with beautiful quotes about love. Each pencil grows into a different plant:

  • Thyme
  • Carnation
  • Daisy
  • Forget-me-not
  • Sage

Every year, roughly 100 million roses are sold on Valentine’s Day in the US alone. Most of them are flown from Latin America. The flights burn approximately 114 million litres of fuel, emitting approximately 360,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. American shoppers are expected to spend nearly $2 billion on flowers on Valentine’s Day.
