ECO-FRIENDLY PENCILS: Advanced Recycler

Turn Tiny Stubs into Long Pencils! 

It’s almost impossible to use an entire pencil because after repeated sharpenings you eventually end up with a tiny unusable stub. There’s a solution to that problem:a  clever new sharpener with multiple blades that lets you stack a stub onto a brand new pencil and keep using it until it’s completely gone.

Tsungo means "Let's Connect". Connect two tiny pencils to create a new, longer pencil! 

The first is used to sharpen a pencil like normal, but the second bores a hole in the bottom of a short stub while the third creates a plug on the tip of a brand new pencil allowing the two to be connected with a perfectly-sized interlocking joint.

The final step is to use a little bit of wood glue to permanently bond the two pencils together. Once dry, it can be sharpened again letting you reclaim the last few inches of a pencil you thought was destined for the trash - an excellent up-cycle alternative!
