Green Alternatives to Notebooks
Did you know that the global production of paper and cardboard stood at somewhat 410.7 million metric tons in 2015? The United Kingdom alone sold approximately 38.8 million British pounds worth of paper notebooks, letters and memorandum pads. The amount of paper used is insane, isn’t it? Luckily, the world is changing and another option that is becoming more popular are green alternatives to notebooks.
When it comes to taking notes, there are many alternatives to a regular, paper notebook. Using a smartphone, laptop or desktop with one of many note-taking and to-do apps will do the trick for most people.
If you’d rather stay away from screens, there are some really interesting patents such as Rocketbook. Rocketbook lets you write with quality pens on an erasable surface, offering you the comfort of writing by hand without using any paper. Plus, it looks much like a real notebook.
Printing in the office can be reduced, but sometimes it is unavoidable. Fortunately, you can buy paper that is made out of alternative plant fiber, such as hemp, kenaf, and khanna. Ironically, what we consider “alternative” plant fiber today was actually the main material for making paper all up until the 19th century!
