The tree in the carton / 348-321198

The tree in the carton

Excessive use of paper towels will accelerate the depletion of natural resources. The tree in the carton presents consumers with the concept of "disappearing trees" through a transparent shell, reminding consumers not to overuse paper towels.
The bottom of the carton contains edible tree-shaped solid pigments. When putting paper in the carton, the user can use a little force to make the side of the toilet paper printed with color, which can be clearly seen through the glass box on the lid. The "green tree" gradually disappeared, conveying "You seem to be cutting a tree" to remind consumers not to overuse paper towels.
