JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take matters into your own hands. Even the smallest acts have the power to create a big impact, from a friendly smile to an encouraging note -- this same idea is especially important when it comes to keeping our planet clean. Pilot Corporation of America's B2P (Bottle 2 Pen) products are part of a bigger solution to make the earth greener – leaving the planet a brighter place for future generations.
"It's our shared responsibility to be good stewards to the planet and to protect the environment. Making an effort to leave greener footprints behind have to be incorporated into our everyday choices," said Ariann Langsam, Director of Consumer Marketing and Marketing Research. "Pilot's B2P line of pens give consumers the opportunity to use a writing instrument that positively impacts the next generation."
B2P is the world's first pen made from recycled bottles. Using 89 percent and 83 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles respectively, B2P Gel ink and B2P Ball Point pens are not only great writing instruments, but also as practical examples of what can be produced from the goods we throw away each day. Approximately 2.5 million plastic bottles enter landfills every hour in the United States, and comprise close to 50 percent of all recyclable waste. Enough plastic bottles are thrown away each year in the United States to circle the world four times. For every two B2P pens made, there's one less plastic bottle headed to a landfill.
Pilot recently launched its B2P Colors Gel line featuring brightly colored barrels and coordinating long-lasting G2 Gel ink for a refreshing splash of color. Available in seven different colors including Black (clear barrel), Turquoise, Lime, Green, Orange, Pink and Purple and made from 89 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, B2P Colors deliver smooth writing and are retractable and refillable for a lifetime of beautiful, effortless writing with a clear conscience.
