CROWDFUNDING NEWS – If the Paper Guardian looks a little familiar, that’s because we told you about it a couple of years ago in 2019 when was an unsuccessful campaign. Even though the campaign didn’t succeed, people kept asking about it so they decided to relaunch and have already met their goal this time around.
What is it?
The Paper Guardian is an A5-sized paper holder with a built-in paper cutter that lets you recycle used typing paper to create a refillable notebook/clipboard that will never run out of paper.
Why do I like it?
I like the Paper Guardian because it lets you reuse/recycle paper that you would have otherwise thrown in the trash bin. I also like that has a built-in straight edge that you can use to resize 8.5 x 11 inch papers into A5-sized sheets (5-7/8 x 8-1/4in / 148 x 210 mm) that fit in the Paper Guardian’s paper holder. A5 is my favorite size to use because it’s manageable and can easily fit into bags.
Where can I find more info?
