Back to School 2010: Seltzer's Seven Year Pen

Each year, over 100 million pens are discarded every single day. Seltzer wants to decrease that number, so they created the Seven Year Pen. It’s a very nice, durable pen that is sleek, modern, and made of high-quality components. It features a jumbo ink supply that fills the entire pen barrel, can write two meters a day for 7 years, has super smooth black ink, a long-life tip, stylish, silk-screened graphics, and a portion of each sale will go to environmental causes.

I received the “swirl” style pen and I really, truly like it. I have it clipped to my planner and I’ve been using it several times daily since I received it about a month ago. So far, I have not had a break in writing with it, I’ve never had to do the trademark ink pen scribble to get it to work, it’s very durable, and I love the way it writes; so smooth and perfect.

The Switzerland-made Seven Year Pen retails for $7.50 and is currently available in 13 different designs in black ink only. What a great eco-friendly teacher's gift these would make! You can order these pens directly from or from a variety of art and stationary stores nationwide.

Thank you to Seltzer for providing us with a sample product free of charge to base this review upon.
