Don’t you just hate it when all that it’s left of your favorite pencils are some tiny stubs? You really can’t do anything useful with them, right? Wrong! Instead of throwing out those seemingly useless pencil stubs, some inventive MIT students created the perfect pencils that can produce food. They created the Sprout Pencil out of biodegradable materials and with an eraser that is actually a cup of seeds. So when your pencil becomes very small and you can’t properly right with it, you can just stick it into a pot and start growing some fresh herbs. Each Sprout Pencil is labeled so you’ll know what you are planting in your pots.
