Q. Does Pilot have any eco-friendly / recycled products?
Yes! Pilot is proud to have launched the first pen made from recycled water bottles, the revolutionary B2P (Bottle-2-Pen) in 2010. The B2P product family is the world’s first line of pens (gel ink and ball point) made from recycled bottles. Approximately 2 Million plastic bottles enter landfills every hour, and comprise close to 50% of all recyclable waste1. B2P gel ink and ball point pens are made from 89% and 83% recycled plastic bottles respectively and have a unique water bottle inspired design. All B2P pens write smoothly and have vibrant ink and are 100% refillable. Help write the next chapter for a cleaner planet with B2P.
Many of our other popular pen types are available in eco-friendly options. To view a complete list, click here. In addition, many of our popular pens can be refilled for continued use. Refilling products extends their useful life and reduces material waste, along with providing a great value! It is considerably less expensive to refill a writing instrument than it is to buy a new one.
