Refill on Us!!
Like most Americans, you probably have too much stuff! In fact, if you look around I bet you could easily find ten things right off the bat that you could get rid of. If you did that everyday think of how uncluttered your life would be.
I spent much of last weekend cleaning out my mother-in-law’s place to move her. Boy, people sure can accumulate a lot of stuff! That gave me the incentive to look around my office. When I opened my pencil drawer I was not happy:
Who needs 10 pencils, 12 pens, 5 markers, and 3 highlighters? Do I really use them or are they just taking up space?
Ok, so you’re probably wondering why I would have some non-Pentel office products in my desk drawer. Well, because before I started working for Pentel, I kept pens from the hotel, pencils from seminars, and various other items. I had to keep them all because I was afraid the pencil would get sharpened away or the pen would run out of ink – so if I kept spares in the drawer they’d be available. You probably think the same way.
However, working for Pentel I’ve been exposed to a different way of using office supplies. In a word: REFILL! Mechanical pencils are refillable. Think about how much space you’d save with one mechanical pencil and a package of lead. Many of our pens are refillable – like some of the EnerGel, the R.S.V.P. and the HyperG. We’ve revolutionized the highlighter and marker industry by offering our REFILLABLE Handy-line S markers and highlighters.
So now my drawer looks like this. (I even found money under all the clutter!)
What does your desk drawer look like? I’ll make a deal with you – send me a picture of a Pentel refillable product in your desk drawer next to a non-refillable product. We’ll send you a refill for the Pentel product if you promise to recycle the non-refillable one after it’s used up!
Can’t wait to hear from you! Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and leave a comment below about your picture or about anything Pentel.
