The DBA 98 Pen is the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world.
If you’re feeling eco-chic and embracing green living, or if you just like great design, check out the new DBA 98 pen that claims to be the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world. Unlike the petroleum plastic writing instruments that we all use on a daily basis, the DBA 98 is made from a new bioplastic made mostly of potatoes and contains a non-toxic ink from water, non-toxic pigments, glycerin (a food-grade sugar alcohol ), and sodium benzoate (a food-grade preservative). All this, plus manufacturing using 100% wind power and recycled packaging and you will be writing with a new purpose.
Buy the three pack directly from DBA for $8 USD.
Field Notes products made in the USA
I’m taking a moment before I have to get ready for dinner to write a few posts for The Desctop. My absence from the blog is due to an overwhelming amount of tasks with my real job (yes, I finally have one) and I’m eager to share some great new finds for your home and/or corporate office.
I’ve been subscribing to more blogs and web sites that promote great products, design and merchandise. One such rare find is A Continuous Lean – a self proclaimed site that is about “American things, good looking things, well designed things and all sorts of other things.” I love it! The man behind the genius is Michael Williams, the savvy PR mind behind the small shop Paul+Williams. He’s a curator of great design and you can now buy his choices directly at his web site A Continuous Lean.
Among the small collection of hand-picked brands, Williams is supporting Field Notes, the flashback inspired stationers of old-fashioned memo books and classic pens and pencils. The Draplin Design Company of Portland, Oregon and Coudal Partners of Chicago, Illinois bring you a small collection of simple products that complement any desk, modern or traditional. I bought my first memo book while out shopping at J.Crew one day. Funny how the small little accessory fit perfectly with the spring awakening of the store’s new collection of new American classic menswear. As a sidenote, I’ve fallen in love again with J.Crew for both casual and office clothes.
The 18-month calendar, the set of six pens, old school No. 2 pencils, and the three-pack pocket notebooks are all available at ACL. Be sure to check them out. It’s amazing how the little things on a desk will make a great impact. It’s a quick way to add your POV to a rather simple worksurface.
