Besides taking care of a minimal ecological footprint, the DBA Pen is a every day object touched by minimalist design.

New York based company DBA has the goal of developing products that combine aesthetic strength, technical innovation and ecologically effective principles. DBA’s products standout by an honest simplicity and a heightened sensitivity to user needs. DBA is committed to the awareness and application of responsible materials, efficient construction and intelligent packaging.

The DBA Pen is 98% biodegradable with a body composed of an innovative new bio-plastic, an ink reservoir made from a – renewable – biodegradable fiber and using a custom-formulated ink composed of simple, pronounceable ingredients.

Besides it’s package is composed of 100% recycled content – FSC certified paper – printed with vegetable-based inks and is 100% recyclable.

I love the fact that an every day object like a pen – of which I cannot even count the number I use every year – nowadays can be manufactured with such a minimal impact on the environment. Besides I like the total simplicity of both pen and package.
