Schneider’s Eco-Friendly Production: Environmental Milestones

With an 85% recycling rate, Schneider® turns potential waste into valuable resources, reflecting a closed-loop philosophy that’s as cyclically efficient as nature itself.

- Bio-Based Plastics: Schneider® embraces the future with materials derived from renewable sources, reducing reliance on finite, polluting fossil fuels.
- Recycled Plastics: With a nod to the past, Schneider® reincorporates materials, giving them new life as quality writing instruments that tell a story of transformation.
- Climate Neutral Products: In perhaps its boldest move, Schneider® ensures that every scribble and sketch contributes zero net emissions, embodying true climate responsibility.
