-Matierals After they finished packaging they put the pen into cardboard boxes stuffed with pallets of styrofoam. When the pens are packed, they are shipped to other distributors. Ballpoint Pen Packaging Once the pen is finished it will be packaged in a different way according to how they are sold. They can be packaged in groups and put into bags or into boxes. They can can also put single pens into blister packs with cardboard backs. Product Cycle Most pens are not biodegradable. So the easiest and correct way to dispose them is to recycle the pens. Recycling the pen is better than throwing it into the trash because it trash has to burn which hurts our environment. Disposal
