Stuffs that are disposable as well as inexpensive. It might be just a normal ball point pen in the short term, we should pay the environmental cost in the long term.
Our attitude to consider it disposable. Is it supposed to be the wrong way once the environment being considered? Designers should not only attend to how the product is used, but how it disappears.

Economical materials that can be produced in factories are used. By using paper this way. we can make manufacturing process easier and the product endurable and containable. Besides it is more friendly and grabbable than artificial materials. They use the same external frame.
