How we found it

When we started A Good Company, we knew from the onset that we wanted to make an environmentally friendly pen. You see, most of the pens out there are terrible for the environment, made from the worst kind of plastics, with production methods that will hopefully be subject to tough regulation in the near future.

Our sourcing team visited a number of trade fairs in Hong-Kong and Taiwan, looking for a better alternative. In a quiet corner on a big fair on one of our visits to Taiwan, we fell in love with The Natural Pen Factory, a tiny factory in the Taipei region that makes pens using only natural meadow grass and recycled BPA-free plastics.


The process and way of working

The Natural Pen Factory employs an environmentally friendly and resource-efficient closed-loop manufacturing process, which means that the factory produces no waste products or wastewater.

All materials for the pens are sourced either from recycling (plastics or biomass) or are renewable raw materials from the Taiwan region, such as meadow grass that grows just adjacent to the factory. The water used in the production process stems from the water naturally occurring in the meadow grass, and it’s continuously reconditioned so that the factory doesn’t have to use additional water from the public water supply.

Biogas and waste heat from the production process are used for heating water, for drying and for generating electricity.

About the owner

The founder of the Natural Pen Factory is a former philosopher monk turned farmer and designer.

He spent a great deal of time thinking about the contradictory relationship between our advanced civilisation and nature.

In creating his small factory he has built a self-sufficient system with minimal impact on the environment.

Some call it the 'zen' pen factory.
