T-napkin / napkin paper

T-napkin

Generally,when we use napkins,some small areas usually can’t be used because of the shape of our hands,thus wasted.In China,producing 1 ton of paper consumes 17 trees of 10-year-old. Each year, China’s per capita consumption of napkin is 1.74 kg,which means that 10 million cubic meters of forest are cut down.Therefore,we improve the design of the napkin by cutting it along its edge at 17 degree.On the one hand,the T-napkin after improvement is more consistent with our hand type and habits of using tissue.On the other hand, the design can save about 20% area of the napkin,that is saving 2 million cubic meters of forest each year.
