DO BETTER WITH LESS represents our determination to limit our ecological impact while raising our standards for manufacturing, quality, and innovation. In 2006, we were already precursors by recycling plastic water bottles to turn them into Pilot B2P pens. In 2021, we will go even further in the "From bottle to pen" logic and for the first time in the world, our B2P range will include, as part of its composition, plastic waste reclaimed from beaches. To retrieve this waste, we are collaborating with Terracycle, the global leader in recycling. What's more, the range is expanding with the B2P Ecoball, made of 86.64%* recycled plastic bottles of which 2.5%** are recycled ocean plastic. This retractable, refillable ballpoint offers great writing comfort with a smooth-flowing ink that's available in black, blue, red, and green.
An effective, fun, and highly innovative way to take part in the fight against sea pollution. Together, we can make a difference and help save our planet's resources. By producing a Begreen B2P Ecoball ballpoint pen with recycled plastic, Pilot is reducing the carbon footprint of the pen compared to the same pen produced without recycled plastic. But it does not stop there, by refilling it at least 3 times, you would be offsetting the carbon dioxide emissions too. From the manufacturing through to the end of the product life, it is estimated that buying this Begreen pen and refilling it 3 times reduces the total environmental impact of the pen by -85% compared to buying an additional 3 new pens. A small gesture can make a significant difference in our fight against climate change!
