Pilot B2P Gel Ink Pens

I recently read about the B2P (Bottle to Pen) pens that are made by Pilot. They are made of over 80% recycled drinking water bottles. They have an awesome look, very much like the water bottles they are made from. They use the Pilot G2 refills so of course they write great. When I started trying to find a place that sold them I discovered much to my sadness that they aren't available in the United States. They've apparently been around elsewhere since 2006 according to the information I was able to dig up about them.

Thanks to the awesome people at Tiger Pens in Great Britain today I received 4 of the B2P pens. I ordered them barely over a week ago and they came by way of the mailman today! I was totally amazed. These people are AWESOME! I can totally recommend them.

I truely can't imagine why Pilot has not been able to offer these pens in the US. As an ecologically minded individual and a big fan of the Pilot G2 pens these would be a big hit with me and other's of like interests I'm sure.
