Graphite pencils made from recycled newspaper
Eco Zera produces eco-pencils made from waste newspapers to distribute in retailers, stationery shops, local general dealers as well as local tuck-shops. The pencils are currently sold in four reputable bookshops which are accessible to almost everyone in the community. The enterprise also supplies to wholesalers that distribute to smaller retailers.
Eco Zera also targets local tuck-shops in other schools and in the vicinity of schools to sell Eco Zera pencils. The enterprise uses social media to advertise the products to the general public.
The Voice Newspaper has partnered with Eco Zera to supply their returned newspapers as raw materials at an affordable price.
The Botswana Trade Center has profiled Eco Zera to help with locating markets for the products abroad and in the region.
