What happens when your pencil gets used all the way down to a tiny little stub? You throw it away of course. Well what if we told you that you could grow herbs from that discarded pencil, and never have to waste another pencil again? That’s exactly what Sprout is, a pencil that essentially turns into a plant.

Handmade in Minnesota, the Sprout is a 100% non-toxic pencil that gives your writing device a second life, bringing the fun back to writing. Once the pencil gets down to a non-usable stub, simply plant it into a pot of soil, add water, and watch the seeded pencil turn into one of 8 different herbs. Each pencil is constructed from sustainably harvested cedar wood, and can be used to grow your choice of basil, dill, mint, parsley, cilantro, sage, thyme, and rosemary. Not to mention these pencils smell amazing. Watch the video below. [Purchase: Amazon | Firebox]
