Even if e-mail and the iPhone are taking over the world, Post-it notes are still an indispensable form of communication. Whether used to leave a cute note for your loved one, a written lashing for the roommate who ate your last banana, or to tag a page in your favorite book – here’s a new and eco-friendly take on this age-old favorite. Designed by Naruse-Inokama Architects [1], these adorable house-shaped sticky notes dubbed IE-TAGs [1] (“ie” means “house” in Japanese) have been made from the waste wood collected at the construction sites the firm has worked on. But beyond being green, as Core77 [2] points out, the new design corrects the flaws of earlier generations of the same product – rounded corners mean you don’t have to worry about messily dog-earing your Post-its any longer.
