Smencils: Gourmet Scented Pencils Now Available in the Philippines!

We do not have to be environmentalists to know that in order to preserve our planet, we must save and protect our trees. There is no urgent need to engage in large-scale environmental changes to contribute positively to the earth. We can protect and preserve our natural resources through simple ways such as reusing our printed documents as scratch paper, responsibly separating our garbage, limiting the use of plastic bags in our purchases by bringing our own reusable bags, and many more simple-to-do tasks.

The product featured in the photo above is called Smencils. The Smencil Company is a business from the USA that envisions to save the earth's trees one pencil at a time through its product - Smencils. Instead of wood that is used in commercial pencils, Smencils are made from 100% recycled newspapers. These newspapers are rolled to make Smencils and are sharpened just like you would your regular pencils. As a bonus, Smencils are dipped in the sweetest of scents that last up to two years inside or outside their corn-based biodegradable plastic tubes.

Smencils are now available in the Philippines and are open for distribution and reselling. The suggested retail price per Smencil is 69 pesos. They come in 10 different scents namely, bubble gum, cinnamon, watermelon, orange, black cherry, very berry, cotton candy, grape, tropical blast, and root beer. Currently, Smencils may be purchased from Hobbes and Landes in Fort Bonifacio High Street, Power Plant Mall Rockwell, Greenbelt 5, and Greenhills Promenade branches. The company that has authorized distributorship in the Philippines is Timbrel and Harp Marketing. Those who are interested in dealership or distribution may email . Wholesale buyers and resellers are also welcome. The official website of Smencils Manila may be found here.
