Sand-Book / Book


It is a cardboard box made of recycled used corrugated paper. It is used for the learning of children in poor areas in Africa.In Africa, resources are scarce, but there is a lot of sand and gravel in the region, so SAND-BOOK is adapted to local conditions, and a simple box filled with sand can quickly replace paper and pencil for writing.At the same time, children can plant the plant seeds contained in the corrugated paper in the sand when they take the sand. In this way, children are taught the concept of giving back to nature and focusing on environmental protection.
