    This little device saves metal wastage AND makes sure you don’t lose any pages. The mechanism punches a small hole and tab in the paper, fixing up to three sheets together. Even if you need a normal stapler for more hefty documents, saving a steel staple here and there adds up in the long run – the Earth (and its resources) will thank you.
