When you start buying we start giving…
For every HOPE notebook or pack of pencils purchased we are giving to education and schools projects globally.
Our aim is simple; to help every child get the education they deserve,
one pencil and one mission at a time.
Pencils are the iconic symbol of education and the cornerstone of our giving based approach.
We make all our Hope pencils in our dedicated pencil factory in Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire.

Hope is the creation of Everything Environmental founder Evan Lewis. Based in Bristol Everything Environmental Ltd is the leading light in Environmental and Ethical Promotional Merchandise in the UK and across mainland Europe. Initially called Pencils for Poverty, the vision for Hope was born out of our desire to create a social benefit from the extra production capacity at our pencil factory in Worcestershire.
ONE machine, ONE million pencils, ONE mission: to educate EVERY child.
The team at Everything Environmental give their time to Hope for free. Packing pencils, creating websites, promoting Share a Pencil Day and plenty more. It is all squeezed into any spare time there is while doing their day jobs. Hope doesn’t pay anyone a salary for the work they do. Hope is not a charity, we call it a Giving Enterprise. Hope has to try and cover its costs to keep on going, and to keep on giving.
“Hope is another step towards making the world a better and brighter place to live. Having spent years focused solely on Environmental and Ethical issues it was clear we had to help in other ways. Lifting people and communities out of poverty, helping children affected by humanitarian or natural disasters is a huge challenge. Without doubt education is the most effective route to achieving this important goal. Thank you for all your support.”
Evan Lewis, Founder of Hope
