Five B2P pens can be made from recycling just one 1500ml water bottle.

Bottle 2 Pen from Pilot

Since 2006, Pilot has been producing a range of pens made from at least 70% recycled plastic.  The flagship product within the “Pilot BeGreen” range is the B2P (Bottle 2 Pen) which is manufactured from recycled PET plastic bottles.

Since the launch of B2P, over 7 million plastic bottles have been recycled to make B2P pens*.  That is a lot of plastic which may otherwise have ended up in landfill or the oceans of Europe.

Two versions of the B2P pen are available, a retractable gel pen and ballpoint pen.  Each version is refillable and has a unique visual design which resembles a plastic bottle from which it has evolved. Helping reduce your impact on the environment does not mean that you can’t write with a stylish, eye-catching pen that will make you the envy of your colleagues or classmates and influence them to take the BeGreen approach to their writing.

Pilot B2P Gel Retractable Rollerball Pen


Made from 89% recycled plastic**, this smooth writing gel ink pen does not sacrifice writing enjoyment for environmental sustainability as it uses the same ink refill as one of the world’s best-selling and favourite pens, the Pilot G2.

Available to buy in a choice of 4 ink colours (black, blue, red, green) but as the B2P gel uses standard Pilot G2 refills, Pilot Pen UK offers refills in the following additional colours – Violet, Black/Blue, Orange, Light Blue, Lime Green, Dark Red, Sky Blue and Peacock Green.

0.7mm tip gives a 0.35mm medium writing line.

Pilot B2P Retractable Ballpoint Pen


Made from 95% recycled plastic**, the B2P Ballpoint offers a great writing experience at an affordable price. 


Available in 4 quick-drying, waterproof ink colours (black, blue, red, green).


1.0mm tip gives a 0.31mm medium writing line.


Refill the pen, not the bin

All B2P pens are refillable and using a refill when the ink runs out, rather than a new pen will extend the life and further reduce the amount of plastic which you use in your daily life from going to landfill. 


Refilling the pen also brings a reduction in greenhouse gases and plastic consumption which is produced during the manufacture of an entire pen as opposed to just a refill. 


From the manufacturing through to the end of the product life, it is estimated that refilling a B2P pen just 3 times reduces the total environmental impact of the pen by -51% compared to buying an additional 3 new pens.
