When Mark Buckley visited school to give a very interesting presentation, in passing I mentioned to two of his Staples colleagues that my Diet Coke addiction had negative environmental implications. They responded that the B2P pen helped ease the effects of all those discarded bottles. Each pen includes 89% recycled PET (about the equivalent of two bottles). Mr. Buckley kindly let me take his sample pen, pictured above.
Manufactured by the Pilot Corporation, the retractable (and cute) pen does have very nice, smooth writing. It does have a different feel to it in my hand, but that may be due to the less contoured shape of the instrument as much as the material. The one I have is medium (.7) in blue. It’s also available in red, green, and black, as well as in fine (.5). They need to add purple ink to the line!
The Pilot Corporation is on PETA’s list of companies that do not test on animals, so it’s animal-friendly as well as eco-friendly.
