5 Reasons to Uncap on Earth Day

 1. There are over 10 different greens to choose from among Sharpie markers, highlighters and pens! That’s a whole lot of green to uncap!  Celebrate Earth Day by sending notes to friends, family, & co-workers with tips on how to be eco-friendly everyday.  Write a letter to someone you know who practices a green lifestyle and celebrate their efforts!  Leave reminders around the house, at school & in the office to do simple things that make an impact:  Turn off the lights, conserve water, unplug electronics that you aren’t using, & of course recycle.

2. If you go through copious amounts of black Sharpie markers, this one’s for you:  Get your hands on a Stainless Steel Sharpie and you’ll be sleek, stylish, and eco-friendly!  The refillable barrel makes it easy to cut down on materials otherwise used to produce a brand new Sharpie marker – not to mention the gasoline that you’ll save cutting out those extra trips to the store. 


3. Use up the that Sharpie ink today & every day!  Sharpie has partnered up with Terracycle so that you can recycle your used Sharpie products & packaging.  Terracycle will UPCYCLE these materials to make an entirely new product! (Find out more, click here)

4. You can make a “#1 EARTH” foam finger to celebrate Earth Day using Sharpie Markers just like the one Stephen Colbert made!!!

5.  Boldly EXPRESS YOURSELF! Uncapping a Sharpie leads to creative explosions of the mind!  The best ideas start with a Sharpie and a piece of paper.  You could be the person who thinks up with the next life changing GREEN concept!

What are some of your reasons to UNCAP?

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day from Sharpie!


Just for fun, here’s some history on Nancy, from Wikipedia:

Nancy is an American daily and Sunday comic strip originally written and drawn by Ernie Bushmiller.

The character of Nancy, a precocious little girl (eight years old, according to an October 2005 strip), first appeared in the strip Fritzi Ritz about the airheaded flapper title character. After Larry Whittington began Fritzi Ritz in 1922, it was taken over by Bushmiller three years later. In 1933, Bushmiller introduced Fritzi’s niece, Nancy.  Soon she dominated the strip, retitled Nancy in 1938. Fritzi Ritz continued as a Sunday feature into the 1960s. At its peak in the 1970s, Nancy ran in more than 880 newspapers.

Nancy is a titular and wily young lady who is constantly in the state of a daydream or confused plot. Sluggo Smith is Nancy’s best friend. Sluggo is Nancy’s age and is a poor ragamuffin-type from the wrong side of the tracks. There are strips that appear to place Sluggo as Nancy’s boyfriend. He is portrayed as lazy, and his favorite pastime seems to be napping.
