The Perpetua pencil is a triumph in ecological and durable design, and gives a new face to "green" pencils. Made of recycled industrial graphite that is bonded with special rubber polymers to form a solid stick, the Perpetua does not smudge or mark up your hands during use like other woodless pencils and is formulated to last much longer. The Perpetua lacks the fragility of traditional graphite pencils, and with its resilient formula it can be dropped or knocked about without a high risk or breakage making it suitable to be used by all ages. Even if the Perpetua sustains force that can break it, it can still be used and each end can be sharpened with a standard pencil sharpener. Every Perpetua pencil has an integrated colored eraser at the end, and comes packaged with a matching collectable rubber bracelet loop. The Perpetua writes well on most paper types.
