Who doesn't love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils, the crinkle of crisp sheets of blank paper? A paperless office may be au courant, but the tactile pleasures of analog writing tools will never go out of style. O'BON takes the edge off any ecological guilt—which, face it, is as much fun as a paper cut—with its stash of recycled stationery, including what it hails the "world's greatest pencil."

Like the aromatic Smencils, these wood-free (and no-fragrance) implements are made by rolling used newspaper tightly around a graphite core, a process that the company claims better protects the lead from splintering after being dropped.
Pick your poison from good ol' No. 2, professional art, and color pencils, which are available in myriad designs, including the striking animal prints of the Wildlife series.

If it's between-the-sheets action you seek, O'BON's spiral notebooks sandwich 80 pages of bagasse paper, made from leftover sugarcane pulp, between 100 percent recycled card stock. Neatniks can keep their paperwork organized with O'BON's 100 percent recycled ring binders and folders.

And that's all she wrote, folks.
