Existing Universal Design is a design ‘for’ the weak. We reinterpreted this, and tried to do a design ‘by’ the weak. By a social weak being a subject, social impact will be larger and the message that we try to say will be delivered more effectively. For student, consuming notebooks is essential, but it’s eventually consuming trees. This concept design can help children learning the value of nature and returning what they consume. There is a part called ‘Seeder’ which can be taken apart at the cover of the notebook. This Seeder contains a seed of a tree in it. After dampens the Seeder, user plants it in the dirt. Then, the seed sprouts.
