By using low-impact, recycled, and recyclable materials, Onyx and Green is dedicated to contributing to a positive future with every pen and pencil. They also highly encourage upcycling when possible. This has inspired their recycled products line, with items like post-consumer recycled paper, post-industrial recycled plastic, recycled rubber, newspaper, PET bottles, milk cartons, and aluminum. By reusing these materials, their office supplies have the same durable construction, but create less waste than traditional manufacturing. Onyx and Green uses recycled materials for their packaging, and they print their labels with soy-based ink that has a lower impact than traditional ink.
