Six students of a government school designed the eco-friendly pen for National Science Congress.

A group of students of the Panchayat Union Middle School in Pudupalayam village, near Edappadi here, have been using eco-friendly pens in an effort to check the usage of plastic materials.

A majority of the students use the use-and-throw plastic pens available in the market, which badly affect the environment.

Dhanraj, Danush, Manojkumar, Jothipriya, Sankar, and Tamilselvan under the guidance of their teacher S. Dinesh have produced the organic pen.

Plantain leaf, papaya leaf stem, coconut leaf, and castor stem are used as body of the pen. They have fixed the nib at one end of the stem, and closed the other end using maida starch to hold the ink.
