Recycled Motherboard Pencil Holder

The Recycled Circuit Board Pencil Holder has been constructed from recycled printed circuit boards (PCBs). As mentioned with Circuit Board Frames, Circuit Board Clocks, Credit Card Holders, and other such circuit board products, many PCBs are created daily. The most well known use of a PCB is as a motherboard inside a PC. These boards contain mercury, lead and cadmium and so are not suitable for landfill, though many end up as such. Discarded motherboards include many more than those previously used in computers, as many can be obsolete as they are produced, or contain a tiny flaw causing them to be unusable.

Finding a use for all these motherboards and re-purposing them into useful daily items helps to cut down the amount of unnecessary waste created each day. This pencil holder is suitable for any desk with its modern high-tech style, this look comes from the use of motherboard to construct the sides of the holder and demonstrates how discarded material can also be fashionable and useful. The pencil holder measures 8.25 cm x 8.25 cm x 10.2 cm (3.25 in x 3.25 in x 4 in).

Every desk can make use of a pencil holder to keep it organized and tidy, by using one created from motherboards you can help keep the planet tidy too. The Recycled Circuit Board Pencil Holder is just $19.99, which makes it a perfect gift for Christmas or a Birthday!

    I guess the symbolism is more useful than the function. Strictly speaking the construction of these pancil boxes is probably more energy intensive than manufacturing a purpose designed product (cutting and sanding tools consuming electricity etc).

    It’s still a good idea to repurpose disguarded it equipment but to be honest if someone wanted to help the environment then repurposing a discarded plastic bottle would do equally well without the overheads.
