Newell Rubbermaid introduced Paper Mate Biodegradable â€“ the first widely available line of pens and mechanical pencils made with a majority of biodegradable components, which break down in soil/home compost in about a year. Paper Mate Biodegradable products look and feel like conventional plastic, but their compostable components are a bio-plastic made from plant-derived sugar, an annually renewable resource. When disassembled and placed in yard soil or home compost, they decompose in about a year, increasing compost and reducing waste. Additionally, the products are packaged in 100-percent PVC-free recyclable material.
