Regarding products, right from the start, most of BIC® products are designed and made with “just what’s necessary” in terms of raw materials, leaving out anything that is superfluous. On top of their lightweight, BIC® products have a long performance life, and everyone can afford them.

To ease consumer life, BIC implement a strategy of eco-labelling and was the first manufacturer of writing instruments to earn the NF Environnement certification, France’s official ecological label.
