I have just realised how wasteful #pens are. Looking for #ecofriendly substitutes. My handwriting is terrible, so the obvious choice is a #fountainpen but I fear the ink smudge. Happy to be enlightened. I have had a look on here; https://www.treehugger.com/best-eco-friendly-pens-5201425 but hoping for something in #Australia to #supportlocal
Fountain pens and pencils (wood+graphite) are perhaps the one most important change one can adopt to do one's bit at a personal level to address effects of #climate change.
Besides, there are so many advantages and fun of using #fountainpens:
* Coloured inks
* Slowing down writing
* Control your lines
* Ink that can last for years
* Changing nibs
We could go on.
@jellycrystals I saw you've taken the fountain pen plunge. Welcome! <one of us, one of us>
Later, if you're looking for Australia-produced items, I've heard good things about Veridian Pen Studio's #fountainpens. https://www.veridianpenstudio.com.au/our-ethos
Robert Oster and Van Dieman's inks are also made in Australia.
@jeffweiss Yeah, having a crack at it. Just cheap Platinum Preppys for now, but I love their colour. I did look at Van Dieman inks. Might grab some samples.
