recycled bad-ass thing of the day: Yesterday's News Colored Pencils
Sometimes you find something online and think, how did I not already know about these? This is something I could be getting as a gift for my sister who loves to draw... for that matter, either one of my sisters. Or even my Triniti who also loves to draw and recycle!
These colored pencils are "made using recycled sheets of the Beijing People's Daily! Each pencil is made from tightly wrapped sheets of reclaimed Chinese newspapers. As fun to look at as they are to use, they feature rich, smooth colors, are easy to sharpen and are stronger than wood. They come packed in a handy tube which is also recycled, and therefore features random text and photos."

Newspapers bother me. I don't like them. I frown at people who buy them and then toss them in the trash. In a day and age where you can read practically any paper online, it blows my mind that we are still cutting down trees to print newspapers.
But at least someone is turning them into cool colored pencil sets.
I wonder if they sell them in China made from American newspapers...

Do you know about something recycled and bad-ass? Shoot me an email, link's on the right.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
