In 2011, Lee Jae Kyung, founder of Evertree, came up with the idea of sterilizing the library books. The inspiration was drawn from the scene that his daughter is reading a library book while eating. When he tried to picture all the hands that the library book comes into contact with over their long life, a veritable garden of bacteria comes into his mind. Eating food with contaminated hands gives the invisible nasty little creatures an entry point to our body.
People could contract and spread disease through books with the unclean habits of moistening fingers in their mouths when turning the leaves, coughing, and so on. The revolutionary product is aimed at eliminating the disgusting inhabitants of books.
It was "to safeguard the librarians and readers' health; to lessen work for librarians; to foster good reading habits and contribute to cultivating the consciousness of cherishing books, that life may be more rewarding for people who use our products".
The mission drives Evertree to continuously make breakthroughs in this field. With ten years' dedication, we have invented various kinds of sterilizers such as air sterilizer&deodorizer, banknote sterilizer, document sterilizer.
