The White Goat is an unusual but fascinating machine created by the Japanese company 'Oriental.'
Using only regular wasted paper stationary and water, the White Goat creates paper pulp that results in standard toilet tissue rolls. Unfortunately, the machine is currently a bit on the pricey side, priced at $100,000 each. However, now that the technology has been created, this piece can hopefully be streamlined into a cheaper, more cost-effective form in the near future.
Implications - Though the idea is not fully formed enough to maximize its environmental benefits, a product like this shows potential for real change and inspires innovation on this level. As the technicalities and glitches of the machine are gradually eradicated, its potential will undoubtedly be reached as it becomes less costly and more efficient.
