ABOUT VENT for Change

One Machine, One Million Pencils, One Mission.

In 2014 environmental entrepreneur Evan Lewis, bought an ageing run-down facility producing pencils from recycled CD cases. After 18 months of hard work and improvements he was producing an additional one million pencils a year. 

At around the same time there was a string of devastating natural and man-made disasters which were effecting children worldwide, especially their education. Whole communities had been affected and children had lost their chance of going to school. 

“Pencils are the most iconic educational tool going back centuries and I wanted to do something with them, something inspirational.” Evan Lewis Founder of VENT for Change

After months of research, speaking with NGOs and charities large and small, local, national and international it was clear education was a priority the world over. Evan had a potential one million spare pencils but the key was money. Money to rebuild schools, pay teachers and provide essential materials. Evan then fell upon a solution. Sell his pencils and other stationery here in the UK and from the proceeds support existing education projects around the world.
