Being more “green” and respecting our environment. How to succeed following these resolutions?

But it’s not always so easy to do it, especially at work.

Yet, lots of products used in the office could be more eco- friendly. 

How to strongly reduce your impact on the environment at the office?  By using more green pens!

Indeed pens are made from plastic. And plastic is made from oil. By using recycled plastics to produce pens, companies could use less oil and therefore contributes to preserving our natural resources.

Do you know the quantity of plastic used to produce pens in major European countries in one year?  Around 78 000 tonnes of plastic!!!

Saving 78 000 tons of plastic is the equivalent of:

• a plastic cube the size of a 30 floor building,
• a month of petrol for all the cars driven in a city like Paris.

Aware that the future depends on us all and using its expertise, Pilot Corporation of Europe decided to create the first range of recycled pens: Begreen. With Begreen, PILOT's idea is to open up a new, more positive avenue for our planet.

What benefits does this represent for the environment?

In concrete terms, the sales of Begreen pens in Europe, since its launch in 2006, is equivalent to a saving of over 1 215 tons of plastic.

To give you an idea of the environmental benefits, this is equivalent to the annual petrol consumption for over 1 700 cars!

Another way to change your habbit and to reduce your impact on the environment is to refill your pens!

The use of refills strongly minimizes plastic production. Do not throw away the body and the cap of your pen – these are the largest plastic parts of the pen:

In Pilot’s range, 80% of the pens (ballpoints, gel ink pens, rollerballs, markers) are refillable and 100% of the ballpoint pens are refillable!

At PILOT, we think that it's through this type of behaviour that we can all contribute to protecting our environment.

Of course, this approach is not at the expense of our quality, technology and design requirements. The pens selected for the Begreen range have traditionally been some of the leading models in the standard PILOT range.

Furthermore, the Begreen range is large and varied enough for each customer to find the pen or pens which perfectly suit their requirements...
