You’ll Probably Feel Less Guilty About Replacing This Paper Alarm Clock

Paper Alarm Clock (Images courtesy Joon & Jung)
By Andrew Liszewski

Either I’m not replacing my alarm clock often enough, or designers Joon&Jung are being a little over-paranoid about just how many of them are ending up in landfills. Their Paper Alarm Clock was created with the idea that the user could easily replace it by ditching or recycling the outer housing which itself is made of molded, recycled paper. There’s still the inside electronic bits that make the alarm do its thing, but they encourage users to mail those back to them where they’ll be placed inside a fresh housing and sent off to the next user. Perfect for the eco-warrior still stuck in a 9 to 5 job but potentially catastrophic for those who have a tendency of spilling the glass of water they keep on their night stand.
