New York-based DBA has come out with the world's first 98 percent biodegradable pen—which also happens to feature a sleekly elegant profile. All components (save the roller ball and nib) are biodegradable; the casing is made from potato-based bio plastic, the packaging is made from 100 percent recycled paper and printed with vegetable inks, and the pens are made in manufacturing facilities powered by wind turbine. The DBA 98 Pen is $9 for a pack of three.
