When you live on an island, recycling and environmental conservation becomes a huge issue. Only 16% of waste in Japan is sent to landfills, compared to about 60-70% in United States (statistic provided by the National Council on Economic Education) That's why you can find so many environmentally innovative products from Japan. The entire Platinum Preppy line (fountain pens, markers and highlighters) uses a very convenient system so that you can refill it with ink cartridges and replace its tip if it gets damaged. One small pen can last a lifetime!
