"Smencils"

I don’t normally recommend products — and I don’t want people sending me any samples, unless you are a manufacturer of plug-in hybrids. But I saw this in the Washington Post and couldn’t resist.

Smencils are “The world’s only gourmet scented pencils made from 100% recycled newspapers.”

Now I must confess I have never even used one. But the name alone is worth the price.

My one dispute with the Washington Post article that recommends smencils, “Planet-Friendly Buys for a Home Away From Home,” is that they see smencils as something you would give green college students. I don’t really see that. College students don’t use a lot of pencils. I see this more as something for green middle school students.
