i was thinking about how the very basic ballpoint pens, specifically bic brand, are often used and then just tossed away. a lot of the restaurants that i've worked at use these pens simply because they're cheap. once they're out, toss them. however, if there was a way for them to be recycled or made into something else that has nothing to do whatsoever with their intended purpose, i thought it could be pretty interesting. otherwise, they're only adding to the junk in landfills.
