STAEDTLER – The right choice for you and the environment

STAEDTLER – The right choice for you and the environment

STAEDTLER is one of the oldest industrial companies in Germany and ranks among the world's leading manufacturers and suppliers of writing, colouring, drawing and creative products. While we continue to provide our consumers with high-quality products, we also want our fans and users to know that every time when they choose and use a STAEDTLER graphite pencil or coloured pencil for various applications such as writing or colouring, not only are they choosing a responsible brand and using reliable products, but by doing so, they are also placing sustainability in their hands.

We are thrilled to launch our Sustainability Campaign with the theme “Sustainability is in your hands” this year. The main objective of our campaign is to educate all STAEDTLER users and fans in Malaysia on what sets the STAEDTLER brand apart from other stationery brands here in this country, especially when it comes to fulfilling our commitment and responsibility towards the environment.

Sustainability and protection of the environment

The STAEDTLER corporate philosophy attaches great importance to the protection of the environment, consumers and company employees. Each and every employee plays a part in fulfilling our responsibility towards the environment. Long before the emergence of the many eco-standards and environmental seals, STAEDTLER was already demonstrating corporate responsibility through environmentally friendly processes and a self-imposed eco-controlling system. These are all visible from the recyclable materials that we use in our packaging and how we source and process our wood, which is one of the most important raw materials in the production of STAEDTLER wood-cased pencils.

All wooden STAEDTLER graphite pencils and coloured pencils are made using certified wood from sustainably managed forest. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certification are visible on the packaging of our graphite pencils and coloured pencils where you can see the FSC or the PEFC logos at the back of our packaging.  With these certifications, STAEDTLER ensures the documentation and improvement of sustainable forestry management in relation to economic, environmental, and social standards. By using only certified woods, STAEDTLER thus underscores its commitment to the environment and its sense of responsibility in respect of wood – an essential raw material.

To create more awareness on the topic of sustainability, we have created creative and engaging contests throughout the year inviting different age groups to participate.

From 22 May - 21 June 2021 we invited children age 3 - 12 years old to join our online nationwide "Sustainability is in your hands" Colouring Contest 1  and as usual we received a lot of amazing, creative and beautiful artworks from the children in this country.

The judges really had a hard time deliberating because all of the submissions were good in their own right. So to us (the Organizer), all of the participants of this colouring contest are champions and we would like to say thank you to each and every one of you including your awesome supportive parents for your time and effort and most of all for your support in this contest.

It is really mind blowing to see what children ages from 3 - 12 years old can come up with when given the same illustration to work on. We enjoyed seeing the ideas and colouring from all participants. All of you did a great job. Well done.

The hard part for us was that we had to only select 10 artworks from each category and we are happy to announce the winners for category A, B and C for this Colouring Contest 1. All winners have been notified via e-mail. As explained, due to the lockdown there will be a slight delay in delivery of prizes.

Had fun participating in this colouring contest? Join us in the next colouring contest. Stay tuned for the "Sustainability is in your hands" Colouring Contest 2 from 1 – 31 December 2021.
