Bamboo / The matches

Bamboo
Bamboo

"Bamboo" can remind users "Quickly extinguish, or the other part is lit!" Although matches have been replaced by lighters in most cases at present, they are still being used in hotels and some special occasions. In reality, actually, only a small part of a match is used, the most part of it has been wasted. Now "Bamboo" is designed to save natural resources by using the symmetry grooves on the match stick, with it divided into several parts, so that the match can be used more than once.
