    Swedish startup launches A Good Humanium Metal Pen Made From Upcycled Illegal Weapons

     

    16 June, 2020

    Sustainable & social impact startup A Good Company launches the world’s first pen made from upcycled illegal weapons in a partnership with IM Swedish Development Partner. The projects’ long-term aim is to tackle armed violence and to return proceeds back to communities affected by it. 

    Every day, more than 2,000 people are wounded by one of the 875 million small arms currently in global circulation. Millions more are produced each year.

    In an effort to combat this horrific development, Swedish sustainable and social impact startup A Good Company has developed A Good Humanium Metal Pen, the first of its kind, made from upcycled illegal firearms.

    The material used to create the pen is called Humanium Metal and is made out of seized illegal weapons from regions highly affected by armed violence. Humanium Metal is a part of the NGO IM Swedish Development Partner and has gained global recognition and endorsement from several peace advocates and experts such as the Dalai Lama and Hans Blix.

    ”Gun-violence and its violent impact on local communities is a significant barrier preventing social sustainability for millions of people worldwide. If we want environmental sustainability, we must address this issue head on.”, says Anders Ankarlid, CEO & Founder of A Good Company.

    25% of all revenue from the pen will go back to communities severely affected by armed violence. The funds will specifically go to projects supporting survivors and violence-prevention programmes.

    A Good Humanium Metal Pen supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 16, which is set to “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels”.

    The support for the SDG16 is materialized in the project ambition which is to take a symbol of violence and turn it into a peaceful commodity, hopefully used for signing treaties of peace and environmental cooperation.

    ”Humanium Metal by IM converts illegal deadly weapons into products for peace. When brands like A Good Company joins us and our partners it means that they become a part of destroying illegal weapons and financing our work and programs. They now support our global advocacy as well as survivors, youths and communities that are strongly affected by gun violence.”, says Martin Nihlgård, Secretarey General of IM Swedish Development Partner.

    A Good Humanium Metal Pen is now available for pre-order, with delivery in August. The price for each pen, which is engraved with a unique serial number, is €165.00.
