Notebook Nódulo

The aim of this product is to empower poor communities in a sustainable way. The notebook is totally conceived from reused materials and produced locally in the social project Design de Resíduos, promoted by Universidade FUMEC. The covers are made from cardboard packaging and may include fragmented imagery from its past life. The core is common used paper, which is donated by offices. It is french folded, leaving only the blank side up. Covers and interior are die-cut using a desktop press. The spiral binding comes from molded PET bottle thread. By using cheap tools, the notebook is made accessible both for sale and educational purposes.
