The rate at which pencil erasers wear down is far too quick for the modern student. Though a pencil cap eraser can be used, this is just ignoring the problem. Paying extra money for something a pencil should already do is ridiculous. In addition, not all pencils can have pencil cap erasers. Many mechanical pencils, for example, have a clip that blocks the user from putting a pencil cap eraser on the pencil.On top of this, once a mechanical pencils built in eraser becomes too short to be used, it prevents the user from adding more lead to the pencil, or getting the lead that is already in the pencil out. All of this can end up leading to a functioning pencil being thrown away, time and time again. This needless waste isn't good for the environment, nor is it good for the students who use the pencils, having to buy them so regularly.

All in all, pencil erasers present a problem that needs to be solved, for the good of students and for the good of the planet. By making pencil erasers last longer, whether it be by making them out of a better material, or adding more eraser per pencil, we can cut down significantly on unnecessary waste, and on the wasted money and time spent obtaining a new pencil, just for a new eraser.
