Brief Analysis of the Product

  • The whiteboard is made of plastic and metal and the markers are made of plastic and felt tips with different color ink
  • I use the mini whiteboard to make to-do lists to keep myself organized and I keep it on my desk to always remind me what I need to do
  • The whiteboard is magnetic and so are the pens so everything stays in one place making everything super organized

Key Features that Promote Sustainability

  • The whiteboard can be erased and used over and over to write lists and make notes, therefore paper is not being used
  • I am now buying pencil lead because I am not writing with a pencil and paper (the whiteboard markers last a reasonable amount of time)
  • Keeping a to-do list on my desk keeps me organized and reduces stress

Features that Reduce Sustainability

  • The markers don't dry out for quite awhile but when they do, I have to buy new ones
  • When I buy new markers I throw away the old ones, which are made of plastic and end up in the landfill
  • As more people want to buy more markers, fossil fuel is used to manufacture those products which increases carbon emission, ultimately contributing to climate change
