Paper Matches

Wood comes from forests, and the overdevelopment of wood causes the sharp declining of forest resources.
A slim match seems tiny, but when it is multiplied by the fast depletion rate, it consumes a lot.
Paper Matches replace the wood stick by inflammable recycled paper such as waste documents and newspapers. These papers could be made into matchsticks. Paper matches help to improve the utilization rate of waste resources.
