VENT for Change has announced a philanthropic partnership with National Stationery Week for the 2020 campaign in April.
Sustainable brand VENT for Change will give away UK-made recycled pencils for free to every company that signs up as a participating retailer for the April celebration, and which will raise funds for children’s education projects.
Each business that takes part in the campaign will be provided with a selection of pencils in five colours with a #StationeryAddict hashtag.
For a small donation, shop customers can choose their favourite recycled pencil, with all funds raised being donated to education projects run by Plan International UK, a charity which strives to advance children’s rights and attain equality for girls all over the world.
Alongside its selection of sustainably sourced stationery, VENT will provide a shelf-ready display tub, an official collection tin, and more information about some of the education projects currently being run by Plan International UK.
Evan Lewis, founder of VENT for Change, commented: “National Stationery Week has a huge impact amongst stationery addicts of all ages. It will allow us to spread our message of sustainability whilst making an impact with a charity that can change lives.
“We’re excited for retailers to get involved and I can’t wait to see the #StationeryAddict pencils on shelves, countertops and storefronts.”
Retailers can sign up to be involved with National Stationery Week at www.nationalstationeryweek.com/getinvolved/retailer-sign-up/ to receive VENT for Change pencils and an official POS kit.
