USB Drive made from recycled newspapers
A month ago EarthDrive’s eco-friendly usb drive claimed to be the world’s first completely green drive. Well looks like it’s about to get a little competition with this new USB drive. The new drive is made out of recycled newspapers. Yes it is excessively bland looking and if you lay it on a wood desk with similar coloring it will blend in easily with its surroundings making it harder to spot. There’s just not a whole lot about the drive that makes it stand out. Yet, it is made out of recycled materials which will likely draw in the more environmentally conscious.
The drive doesn’t have a lot of perks to it. Stacked against the EarthDrive, the EarthDrive is made from bio-recycled plastics so they are even there. Yet EarthDrive takes it farther and is also a recyclable drive and when you purchase one a portion of the proceeds go to American Forests. In all fairness though, I don’t know many people that would go out of their way to recycle a tiny USB drive. This new drive does come in 16GB, so it does come a bit larger than the EarthDrive. Sadly there is no word on pricing yet, so there is no way to know if this drive is going to cost a fortune or not.
