Throw your pen and grow many treesWe know that we can draw trees with a pen. It is only a picture, it cannot grow leaves or flower . But can a pen grow real trees and not just draw trees?
Yes, the answer is the Seed Pen.
I have heard about seed pen one year back in a local magazine. It was about one Lakshmi Menon connected with 'Pureliving' and 'Entree'. By now seed pens are becoming more popular.
Seed Pens are disposable pens made of paper by rolling the refills in paper rather than a plastic cases. At the top end a few seeds of trees are enclosed. Once the ink gets over, the pen can be 'planted' and watered to allow the seeds to germinate and grow. Thus seed pens are doing two services in one stroke. They reduce plastic usage and waste. They also help ecology by growing trees.
Recently in news was N.M.Shaji who has started using seed pens for preventing vanishing of rare species of forest trees in Western Ghats by using and throwing seed pens filled with the seeds of these species of trees.I was attracted to this as I had posted a thread recently titled What all things you recycled or reused recently?
