Onyx and Green is a world leader and the first brand of its kind to have a full range of school and office products that are made of mostly recycled and natural materials. Their motto is ‘The greener, the better,’ and with over 45 eco-friendly school and office products, they are raising student and parent awareness for protecting the environment.
Onyx and Green uses a wide variety of post-consumer and post-industrial recycled materials in both its products and packaging such as bamboo, stone, sugar cane and corn starch, and biodegradable and natural alternatives like ramie, jute and cotton.
We love this unique pair of Onyx and Green scissors using biodegradable corn plastic instead of petroleum-based plastic for its handles. The fully ground blades are made from stainless steel and are round tipped, which makes it perfect for a young child’s pencil case.
Corn plastic is a sustainable alternative to normal plastic because it is derived from a renewable resource. They are also easy to break down into natural elements and do not produce toxic fumes if they are incinerated.
