Reduce

The Good Pencil Company is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • We are committed to reduce waste and single use materials. This was one of our first goals as a company which continues today. We continue to look into all aspects of our business to reduce and make a positive impact. This year we will pilot reusable shipping packs cutting our single use waste.

  • We are increasing public facing events and this year we plan to update our events equipment to include solar and battery power continuing our commitment to clean and sustainable power.
