Eco-Office, School & Home Stationery (ECOSH)

 

We are a Newcastle-based online initiative that aims to make your office, school and/or home ‘green’ by providing environmentally friendly stationery. Most plastic products and packaging still end up in landfill once they have fulfilled their first use. This wastes the oil used to manufacture the items and pollutes the environment with long-lived waste

 

ECOSH products are made of recycled resources that are biodegradable, sustainable, organic, and reusable, or have minimal impact on the environment.

 

Our range includes eco friendly pens, pencils, rulers and erasers made from recycled plastic and paper, cornstarch and purpose grown timber.

 

The recycled paper pencils and pens are kind to the environment and also a pleasure to write with. Only recycled paper made with post-consumer waste (PCW) can make real claims to fight deforestation and reduce waste going to landfill. ECOSH pens are manufactured from cornstarch, not petroleum, like normal plastic pens. Under the correct conditions, these pens can biodegrade completely within as little as three months.  Our company provides refills so that you need never send your pens’ outer casings to landfill.

 

The timber products are encased in untreated purpose-grown timber from sustainable-managed forests. No paint or lacquer has been used on the wooden body of the pencils. Colours are high quality, smooth and safe (non-toxic), conforming to stringent European standards. The erasers are made from synthetic rubber which is PVC-free and a much safer alternative to the traditional eraser.

 

Did you know that there is a huge mass of plastic litter thought to be twice the size of Texas in the North Pacific Ocean known as the “Pacific Trash Vortex”? This huge concentration of suspended plastic and other rubbish has been carried there and is trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre.
