(EN)

A germ-reducing pen container including a body having a hollow passageway extending therethrough from an insertion end to a distal end for receiving a pen, the hollow passageway having at least one ultraviolet C light operatively attached thereto, an indicator on an outer surface of the body, and a dispensing mechanism operatively attached at the insertion end for dispensing the pen. A method of reducing germs on a pen, by inserting a pen into a body of a germ-reducing pen container, applying ultraviolet C light to the pen, killing the germs on the pen, indicating that the pen has been cleaned, and dispensing the pen.
