I love pencils and journals. There is just something so great about being able to just sit and write. Regardless of what you are writing you should like what you are writing with and what you are writing on. I especially like My O’BON products because they are so cute and so eco-friendly. We received the great My O’BON pencils, colored pencils and kiwi journal. We love using these pencils that are actually made with rolled up newspaper they write better and last longer than most other pencils. Kaia likes using the colored pencils because it does not take a lot of pressure to make a distinct mark. The journal is super cute and fits perfectly in my pruse. Kaia adores the textured cover which is made out of recycled cardboard the pages are made from sugar cane and the ink is soy based. These journals are about as eco-friendly as you can get. Kaia has been “writing” our shopping lists in the Kiwi journal so every shopping trip the journal comes along. She holds the journal up proudly as we walk through the farmers market, grocery store what have you and dictates what she has written. She has gotten so many compliments on her little journal it is incredible. I know that My O’BON products would be fantastic for back to school, for your office, or anywhere really.

In its infancy, O’BON was founded on the simple idea that basic products, such as pencils and notebooks, could be made much more responsibly, and contribute to making the world a better place.

At the time, our trademark product was a pencil made from used newspaper, and it accurately embodied what we hoped to achieve. By being made from newspaper instead of wood, the production of our newspaper pencils didn’t damage the environment. And, since newspaper was more durable than wood, the graphite inside was protected better and so lasted longer.

O’BON, which means “Oh Good” in French, today represents a better, smarter and more responsible choice. On a regular basis, we’ll hear “Oh good, you guys make recycled products” as environmentally-friendly becomes more and more popular with each passing day.

As our message and brand gradually grew, so too did our product line. We began to produce notebooks with paper made from sugarcane pulp, a great alternative resource to wood, and binders made from recycled card stock and cardboard.

As the early-00’s passed, we made a commitment to produce products that were not only eco-friendly, but also extremely attractive. Our belief continues to be that environmentally friendly products don’t have to come in boring designs or earthy green and brown tones. No, we believed in something different, and today, we boldly claim to have the best designs, colors and themes found in stores.

We also focused hard on the educational element of our products. By designing our products around animal designs and environmental facts, our goal is to nudge kids down the path of environmental responsibility and curiosity.

By 2008, O’BON was sold in over a dozen countries around the world, including China, Australia, The United States and Canada. We continue to add more nations to our list as the excitement over eco-friendly products increases.

This year, we started two new projects that we are extremely passionate about. The first, the O’BON School Program, gives us a close relationship with a growing number of schools and a platform to educate kids about the environment, recycling and deforestation. It’s also a great way for kids to use O’BON in fundraising for the clubs they love and to exchange outdated wood pencils for brand new, recycled ones.

The second, O’BON Causes, gives our customers a way to directly contribute making the world a better place through the use of O’BON products. Select an initiative that you are passionate about and we’ll match a potion of your purchase to support it. We currently have released our first cause to combat deforestation, we plant a tree with every purchase on our website.

Each pack of O’BONanza Series includes 9 2B pencils. The O’BONanza series features three different colorful fruit designs showcased on each pencil. The fruit designs, Orange, Kiwifruit, and Strawberry, each come adorned with the O’BON logo and a color-matching rounded top. The barrel is made from 100% recycled newspaper. The newspaper protects the graphite better than wood pencils too, which translates to a longer-lasting, high quality pencil.
