I have two refillable pens. One I've had for 6 years, the other for at least ten. I've never been much of a pen user, so that's about when I transitioned to pen usage.
The mechanical pencils I have, however, are ancient! I have two that are at least 25 years old, and one that could be up to 35!

I use BIC pens and discard them when they are empty. They are placed in the Rigid Plastic recyle category.

Use a pencil
We can assume anything disposable is very bad for the environment. It has not always been like this. Let's get smarter, people. Don't be so easily brain-washed by the media. Easier is usually a bad idea.

Buy a decent pen, and hold onto it. It will last your lifetime and whoever you pass it on to. Refills are cheaper than most plastic pens.
