These are pencils made from recycled newspapers, and they’re manufactured by a company called TreeSmart. As the pencils are sharpened, they produce a marbling pattern near the graphite tip.

Here’s a quote from their website: “Whole newspaper sheets are rolled around high quality No. 2 graphite. No toxic chemicals are used in manufacturing and the eraser tips are latex free. A special adhesive formula binds the newsprint together into a cohesive core that is hard as wood. The pencils sharpen easily and last longer than wood pencils.“
