The 7-Year Pen
Beautiful pens featuring a jumbo ink supply.
Hidden within The 7-Year Pen is a jumbo ink cartridge. This large reservoir allows it to hold substantially more ink than a traditional ballpoint pen.
The Swiss-made 7-Year Pen can write an average of 5.5 feet per day for 2,555 days (that's over 2.6 miles!) before running out of ink.
Currently, an estimated 100 million pens are discarded each day. Help reduce the waste with the environmentally-friendly 7-Year Pen.

The pen with the 7-year lifespan
According to the manufacturer, approximately 100 million pens are discarded every day. Dang. (Side note: I'm hoping that none of those hundo-mill are these.)
Do your part to stem the tide of discarded pens with The Seven Year Pen! Featuring a jumbo ink cartridge, the Swiss-made implement can write for miles before running out of ink.
Draws for miles!
Put your verbosity to the test with The 7-Year Pen. It's filled with enough ink that you could draw a line to the top of the Sears Tower* and back down to the ground more than four times.
The 7-year lifespan is based on writing 5.5 feet per day x 7 years = 2.66 miles (4.28 kilometers).
*Yeah, yeah, we know it's now called the Willis Tower, but it'll always be the Sears Tower to us.
Jumbo ink cartridge = super-long life
The secret to a long-lasting pen (and thus reducing landfill waste) is the jumbo ink cartridge!
The circumference of its reservoir is orders of magnitude larger than your standard ballpoint pen. However, the barrel of the pen isn't oversized. Basically, your typical ballpoint pen has a lot of wasted space inside of its barrel.

The Seven Year Pen is currently available in the following styles: mustache, plume, and bacon!
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What if I write more than 5.5 feet per day?
Answer: Then your pen may not last seven years. Think of it this way: 7-Year Pen sounds better than The 14,052-Foot Pen, don't you think?
Question: Why shouldn't I just buy a bunch of cheap ballpoint pens instead?
Answer: Because deep down you're not a wasteful person!
Question: Can I get refills for it?
Answer: We do not currently carry refills. We may do so in the future.
Question: Wait... don't you guys sell another pen that lasts a lifetime?
Answer: Great memory! Yes, the Inkless Metal Pen is amazing, but its markings look more like a pencil and it cannot write on some surfaces such as cardboard and newsprint.
Question: Does the bacon one smell like bacon?
Answer: No, but our Bacon Popcorn tastes like bacon. Good compromise, right?
