Evan Lewis, Founder of VENT for Change, has been running his environmental wholesale business since 2005. In that capacity he purchased an old run-down machine in 2014 to make pencils from recycled plastic. In 2017 he turned his attention to people as well as the planet and started giving away pencils to help support education projects worldwide.

By 2019 this had transformed into a fully sustainable stationery brand including the pencils plus notebooks, journals, pens and more that were made available to retailers. 5% of VENT’s total revenue goes towards supporting education, this isn’t based on profits made, they are hard to come by, it’s 5% of all net sales turnover from the first item sold to the last.
