Innovation is easy pea(sy)

Innovation: {The creation of something in the mind; The act of starting something for the first time; introducing something new}

This idea came to me in the midnight hours. As the saying goes: “Great ideas don’t keep office hours” 🙂

We are in the midst of a water crisis and I thought of creating some awareness around it. Cactus plants are water-wise plants and require very little water to thrive.

I also thought of a way for people to still enjoy some greenery on their desks, without having to water it! So I designed a little stationery holder…specifically for paper clips. It is made using a pea can or food can.

Did you know? Paper clips were used to help fight the Nazis. During the Second World War, Norwegian resistance fighters attached a single paper clip to their lapel as a subtle indication that they were taking the fight to Hitler’s troops.

 

Completed product

I am all about being practical. On the inside of the lid is a handy magnet to keep your paper clips close and handy.

On the desk

Cuteness! 🙂 From kitchen waste to a functional, cute product!
