Pencils are found everywhere because pencils are so useful and so common in our daily lives, we all had used these pencils from our childhood till we can write. But do you know from where did they come? Who invented them? and How you contribute through your “Pencil” for Environment? A “Pencil” can contribute lots for Environment if we adopt Seed Pencils and Recycle Paper Pencils.
In India manufacture of pencils goes back to the Swadeshi movement as far back as 1905. Since then, the industry had to face very hard competition from countries such as the UK, Germany, Japan, USA, etc. Even before world war India had to meet her requirements of pencils from imports, the bulk of which came from the UK, Japan, Czechoslovakia and Germany. The average imports in the pre-war period were of the order of 5000000 dozens per annum.
Most pencils are made out of wood and graphite and since wood is used we wanted to find out how many trees it took each year to make pencils, especially since there are really cool pencils made out of recycled materials notably newspaper or other waste paper.
Every year about 3.5 billion pencils made in U.S. and about 15-20 billion pencils made in worldwide. 15-20 billion is a lot of pencils! Just taking 15 billion pencils and laying them end to end they would stretch from the earth to the moon almost seven times!
Pencils can be made from different woods in the U.S. they are mainly made from California Incense Cedar (as a result of a shortage of Red Cedar). Imports might use other trees including rain-forest hardwoods.
Using these dimensions, and 15 billion pencils per year, results in a need for about 60,000 trees.
