Reduce : Reuse : Make Pencils


The award winning P&P Office Waste Processor device by Chinese designers Chengzhu Ruan, Yuanyuan Liu, Xinwei Yuan and Chao Chen turns regular waste paper into fully functional pencils. According to the prototype, you simply feed in a sheet of paper and the device will tightly wrap it around a graphite stick, sealing the roll with a small amount of glue. Your pencil will come out pre-sharpened, the same hole can then be used as an automatic pencil sharpener. This product is not currently in production, however we hope to expose this unique design and what it is capable of in terms of instant, productive recycling.
