I’m loving my new eco pencil holder.  Homemade from a curved piece of tree bark which holds my pencils (haven’t used pens for years now, preferring pencils as the stub and shavings can be composted unlike a finished pen).  It also fits a rubber, a metal sharpener and a half coconut for the pencil shavings.  Stylish, practical, eco friendly, home made, natural, compostable, whats not to love!!
