Earth Day Giveaway.

320px-Earth_flag_PD
I’ve meant to do this for years, and I’ve finally amassed enough “eco” pencils to give it a go. The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a selection of pencils which are billed as Earth Friendly in some way (whether truly or not). There are some very nice pencils in this category, like the Wopex, Forest Choice, Ticonderoga EnviroStik*, O’Bon, etc. I promise that this will be a very cool prize.

Rules:
Usually, we go with a theme. This time, simply leave one (1) comment to be entered. Contest is limited to wherever I can send a small package via the US Postal Service, which is probably most places on Earth. I’d like to get the package out before April 22nd. So we’ll end the collection of entries on Easter Saturday/Sunday at midnight, which is really late Saturday night to my fellow Night Owls. I’ll contact the winner by Sunday night, April 20th. If we can’t get a response from the winner in one week for some reason, we’ll pick a new one.

*Which is, apparently, minimalistic enough to not need the C to spell it correctly.

    Thanks so much for all of the time and energy you put into this blog – I look forward to every post!

  2. David says:

    Not including the “c” in EnviroStik saves the energy of carving and embossing the ‘c’ in each pencil, clearly. Letters are a non-renewable resource, after all.

  3. Matt D says:

    I would love to get this one!

  4. Wesley says:

    I wonder how the Enviro Stik stacks up to a regular Ticonderoga.

  19. This post inspired me to sharpen my Berol Eagle Recycled USA pencil. It has a waxy lead, all right, but it writes well.

  20. Chad says:

    I’m in!

  21. Steve D. says:

    John, thanks to your blog, I’m using pencils again after taking a 20 year break from them. As a lefty I have been on a 20 year search for pens that dry fast enough that I don’t smear them, and still lay down a continuous line without skipping. I have settled on the Uniball Jetstream, and Pentel Energels. Then I started reading your blog, and even wrote a 1000 words today in pencil. It was a great experience with clean continuous lines with no skipping on cheap ruled filler paper. Unlike ink when I saw the dark collection of graphite on the bottom of my hand a quick wash in the sink and it was all gone. Thanks for reminding me to try writing with pencils again.

  22. Geoff says:

  73. This one comment is so much easier than say — switching out the cool, seemingly heaven-sent smooth ( borderline magic ) pencil I might find upon the counter of a dry cleaners, with an unforgiving 6H I happen to had miraculously found on the floor of my car.
