The latest must-have for stylish elementary schoolers isn’t a new brand of shoes or a particular style of t-shirt. It’s eco-friendly gourmet-scented pencils from Smencils. And, really, given the fact that they are relatively inexpensive and “green,” it’s easy to get on board with this trend. From traditional graphite pencils to colored pencils to pens, each Smencils product is produced using recycled newspapers and is packaged in corn-based biodegradable tubes and envelopes. Best of all, each writing instrument is scented with a gourmet fragrance that is guaranteed to last up to two years. They sharpen like regular pencils, write like regular pencils and smell almost good enough to eat.
