No-Waste Notebooks

Regular price4.75

The overwhelming majority of comp/notebooks are only (very) partially used, which means a stunning amount of never-used paper is routinely sent to recycling or landfill. Spiral-bound everything is landfill, as are comp + notebooks with poly, laminated, or non-paper covers.

100% Recycled Cover
30% Post-Consumer Waste (pages)
100% Recyclable
Made Locally (Northern California)
44 Pages Each
Perfect Bound
8" x 10"
70# Paper (no bleed through)

Graphing 4x4 - 16 squares per inch
Graphing 5x5 - 25 squares per inch

Years of sorting through thousands of discarded notebooks during Locker Clean Out Events (aka waste audits) taught us some things:

We're making a big mistake instructing students to purchase disposable plastic, vinyl, spiral-bound, and wasteful supplies every year in the name of "education" - the irony is painful.

Example: Classroom of 20 students
4 comp books/student/year
Avg # of unused sheets/notebook: 50
4000 sheets/classroom = 1/3 of a tree
= A giant carbon footprint for no good reason.
Goal: Set an example for students to waste less, for the good of everything.

High page count comp/notebooks

Notebooks with poly-covers, laminated covers, glittery, or metallic covers.

Place used notebook in the paper recycling bin.

If so inclined, you can go the extra mile and tear off the front and back covers and place everything in the paper recycling bin - this makes it easier for recycling haulers to access the white (interior) paper that most often has a higher recycling value $$.

Free within 30 days of receipt.
If there is an issue with your purchase, please reach out so we can make it right.

Orders typically packed within 24-48 hours Monday - Friday.

Orders ship via USPS or UPS. Shipping prices are the actual rates we pay (the true cost of shipping from Northern CA. - Sorry Maine!). As we grow, we will negotiate more favorable shipping rates, but for now, we pack every order (plastic-free), load up our cars, and deliver to a post office in a nearby town because our local Post Office refuses to accept or pick up the “large” number of packages we have outgoing on a normal basis.

Thanks for your patience while we navigate how to scale what we’re doing!

Best Notebooks

I love these notebooks. They have enough pages to write a lot but you're not wasting paper the way you do with other notebooks. It's also wonderful that there's no plastic or metal involved!

The box the notebooks arrive in was a little too large but the product is fantastic!

Just what I was looking for

Wanted a plastic free notebook and this fit the bill. Thanks! 2 notebooks came in a largish box, maybe a paper mailer for smaller quantities? Otherwise very happy!

Top Notch sustainability

I’ve ordered notepads and folders for my business and they are exactly what I needed. We need to shift to sustainable!!

Nice and Easy

I appreciate that the products I am purchasing will not be a burden on the earth after it has been used. The products are smart, efficient, and easy to recycle. No worries when it comes to "If" it can be recycled, because it can and that is why I like this brand so much. I appreciate the non-toxic inks used and paper that is already recycled. The pencil tin is helpful and it does keep things from making noise. The highlighter is vibrant and doesnt ruin the ink or pencil marks. I have spent a good amount of money on products that I can give as gifts and share the wonderful resource of recyclable products.

I will eventually buy at least one of every item they sell

This is a No-Waste Notebook review, so I will just say that they’re the perfect size for one-subject notebooks. I am currently using one for just that—notes on the books I read. I’m using one for gardening notes, and another one for designs and notes on projects I want to tackle. Would buy again in a heartbeat.
I also bought the pencil boxes, two of them, and they are enchanting. Every item is reusable or recyclable. Will give them as gifts.
