I love discovering companies that are finding ways to recycle currently hard-to-recycle products. My latest find isn't a company, but a person, The Pen Guy, who uses disposable pens to make works of art.
It's great someone is putting used pens to good use because there are a lot of them out there. According to Wikipedia, Bic, the France-based manufacturer of ball-point pens, announced in 2005 it sold its 100 billionth disposable pen.
As you can see, I have more pens than I need. Many of them are so old, they don't write anymore. So my Thrifty Green Thursday tip of the week is mail your old pens to:
The Pen Guy
2425 Mendocino Ave.
Santa Rosa, CA 95403
