Human-powered paper shredder!

If you are like me, you are tired of having to tear your hundreds of weekly credit card applications into pieces to avoid identity theft! If, like me, you also don't really like those loud and kind of ugly electronic shredders, then we have found just the thing for you!

IDEA (by Yuen'to) had created this cool "Bye Bye Handy Shredder" -- and it comes in several really cute colors. You put a page or two inside the shredder and than hand crank it, and PRESTO! All your papers are shred into tiny indecipherable pieces!

Sadly, they are mostly on sale in Japan and Asia, but you might be able to find one in a cool modern museum gift shop (like we did in the Philadelphia Museum of Art). They cost around $40 to $50, and best of all, use no energy other than your own human arm! And they look cool, too!

Check it out here!

  1. I do hope they start selling them here in the US. It would be nice to own a simple paper shredder that doesn’t need electricity, battery or motors for it to work. It would be handy for people who don’t need shredders very much.
