JACKSONVILLE, Fla. , April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 2.5 million plastic
bottles are dumped in landfills every hour. Pilot Pen is doing its part to
help lower the amount of post-consumer waste by transforming plastic bottles
into their B2P (Bottle2Pen) line. They also convert recycled materials into
the refillable VBoard Master Dry Erase markers, which are part of the full
BeGreeN line of recycled pens, pencils, and markers.

"Pilot is proud to be a part of the earth-friendly movement and to be an
ongoing sponsor of the Keep America Beautiful organization," said Ariann
Langsam, Director of Consumer Marketing and Marketing Research. "Using our B2P
pens and VBoard Master Dry Erase markers can be part of an everyday commitment
to make our planet healthier and cleaner. It's an easy way to go green and
proudly express your stance on environmental issues."

Made from 89 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, the plastic from
one bottle can be used to create approximately two B2P gel pens. The B2P gel
pen uses the same gel ink as Pilot's number 1 selling G2 pen, so you can have
the same long-lasting, smooth writing experience that Pilot's known for, while
also contributing to the recycling movement. B2P BallPoint, introduced in
2012, is composed of 83 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Both
B2P Gel and B2P BallPoint pens are designed to resemble a translucent water
bottle, allowing you to write with a clear conscience. Since they are also
retractable and refillable, you'll have a lifetime of smooth writing.

Pilot's VBoard Master Dry Erase Markers provide another simple way to go
green. Made from 91 percent recycled content, VBoard Master markers are a
responsible choice for doing the right thing for the environment. Vivid,
dense ink enables writing to be clearly visible from a distance, and the
unique, patented Twin Pipe Feed System provides consistent color intensity
from the first written word to the last. Most notably, the long-lasting ink is
refillable up to four times, creating ultimate eco-friendliness and value.

To encourage green efforts all year long, Pilot Corporation of America is an
official sponsor of Keep America Beautiful, the nation's largest
volunteer-based community action and education organization dedicated to
encouraging individuals to protect and preserve the environment by preventing
litter, reducing waste, and beautifying communities.
