Extensive Definition

Remarkable is a UK company that makes stationery products out of recycled products. Its most famous was the recycled pencil, each made from one recycled vending machine cup. The cups are collected from the Save a Cup Recycling Company. The invention became a Millennium product, which was sold as shown at the Millennium Dome. Other products have been made, including plastic rulers (also made from vending machine cups), recycled rubber tyres; to make mouse mats and pencil cases.
The company has now been granted £20,000 by London Remade, and has bought brand new binding machines to bind the recycled notepads. This has helped Remarkable to be able to create a greater range of products, which will help it get contracts from stores like W H Smith.
