Looking for a pen that's as stylish as it is eco-friendly? Check out our Fowey Bamboo Eco Ballpoint! Made from sustainable bamboo, this pen is not only a great writing tool but also a cool nod to our stunning coastal town of Fowey in Cornwall, where our shop is based. 

Why You'll Love It:

Eco-Friendly Bamboo: Each pen is crafted from a single piece of sustainable bamboo, giving it a unique look with natural grain and colour variations. No two pens are exactly the same!

Smooth Black Ink: Enjoy a seamless writing experience with smooth black ink that’s perfect for everyday notes or important documents. Just as good for writing your holiday postcards, writing shopping lists, doing the morning crossword or on your work desk.

Cool Engraving: Laser engraved with “Fowey,” this pen has a bit of local flair that makes it extra special. It’s a great way to carry a piece of this beautiful coastal town with you.

Go Green: Choosing bamboo means you’re making an eco-friendly choice, reducing plastic waste, and supporting sustainable practices. 

Why Bamboo Rocks:

  • Rapid Renewal: Bamboo grows incredibly fast – some species can grow up to three feet in just 24 hours! This makes it one of the most renewable resources on the planet.
  • Less Resource-Intensive: Bamboo requires much less water and pesticides compared to traditional wood, making it a more environmentally friendly choice.
  • Carbon Absorption: Bamboo absorbs more carbon dioxide and releases more oxygen than equivalent types of tree, helping combat climate change.
  • Soil Health: The root system of bamboo helps prevent soil erosion and maintains soil health, contributing to a healthier ecosystem.

Great Gift Idea: Packaged on a sustainable cardboard backing card, this pen makes an awesome gift for friends, family, or anyone who loves stylish, sustainable products to remind them of their favourite Cornish town.

Add some coastal charm to your writing with our Fowey Bamboo Eco Ballpoint Pen. Swing by our shop in Fowey, Cornwall, or grab one online and enjoy a touch of natural sustainability in your everyday life!

Returns & refunds

International Shipping

Post Brexit International Shipping has become exceptionally onerous for small businesses, particularly ones like mine which mainly ship domestically. Shipping charges will often vary considerably depending exactly what items are purchased. Your order will be sent via the postage service which most closely matches the amount you have paid for postage. If there is a significant discrepancy we will refund any overpayment and reserve the right to contact you to discuss options in the event of underpayment.

As a small business with minimal margins on our gift products we are unable to absorb shipping costs over and over the amount paid and hope that you will understand this. Unfortunately we are unable to offer a free shipping service internationally.

We will complete the relevant customs forms but will not be responsible for any tax which may be levied for collection within the destination country as this is simply too big and complicated an undertaking for us to deal with when we handle so few international orders. Please make yourself aware of any shipping restrictions pertaining to the destination country. We recommend using this guide before ordering to check that we are able to ship the item you intend to order.
