JOT IT DOWN:  EcoPens from Uncommon Goods are made of corn starch instead of plastic.  That means they’ll break down in a timely manner, once you’re ready to throw them away.  What’s more, even the box they come in is recycled and printed with soy ink.  Now that’s a smart, earth-friendly school supply.  Perhaps you should share them with the class.  GET IT:  EcoPens (set of 12), $24.  Available online from Uncommon Goods.
