The original and best-selling Pilot FriXion erasable pen, is now made from at least 50% recycled plastic (excluding replaceable parts).
The manufacturing process change not only helps reduce plastic waste, but also brings a 34% reduction in terms of the CO2 impact of one pen produced with recycled plastic compared to one pen produced without recycled plastic.
The entire range of FriXion Ball pens in fine, medium and broad tip sizes are also refillable. Pilot say the benefits of using refills in terms of reducing the whole life CO2 impact of the pen, and refilling a FriXion Ball pen just three times reduces the C02 impact by 56% compared to using four new pens.
Using recycled instead of virgin plastic produces less CO2 and the manufacture of a refill compared to an entire new pen also reduces the amount of CO2 generated.
