Branded recycled pens – A quick glance

Branded recycled pens

What do vegetables, tyres and old CDs have in common? Well, they can all be recycled into an everyday essential tool – a pen.

With everyone more aware of protecting their environmentally nowadays, choosing an eco-friendly printed pen is a great way to promote your business and cause – and at the same time reinforces your own brand’s commitment to the environment.

You can print on branded recycled pens in just the same way as traditional metal or plastic – and with us ensure a high quality print design and finish. There is an extensive range of colours to choose from and they don’t have to cost you the earth in monetary terms either, with prices starting from 24p.

So you can take the humble parsnip, potato or pea and use the naturally derived corn starch to make plastic – a natural, eco-friendly plastic. It’s a great talking point when you are giving your branded pens to customers during your marketing promotions too! And when the ink does run out, they are biodegradable.


Big brands in pen manufacturing have realised the potential in eco-friendly products and Contour has produced its own version where the barrel is made from recycled plastic.

We have free samples and can help with style, colour choices and print design – so if you want to demonstrate your ‘green’ credentials with your next promo pen merchandising campaign, contact our Leicester office.
