The story of a brother and sister who started in high school
with the mission to make a difference.
Since we launched our original and best-selling
GreenBook A5 Lined we’ve not looked back.

Our green story

This is how it all started. In high school, Yagmur (now 22) started searching for sustainable school supplies which looked good and should be affordable for everyday use. She teamed up with her brother Kaim who was very interested in entrepreneurship. Together, they created eco-friendly, high-quality products which have now helped thousands of people to be productive. We believe in designing products that are made to last rather than fall apart. Read more about the start in this interview with Yagmur.

We have inherited this earth, so let’s keep it safe for our children and grandchildren. Fair wages and environmentally conscious design define us. Read about our impact here.

GreenTeam

Queen of words

Fleur is showing a different side of herself compared to her current studies (philosophy and history): she is responsible for writing the texts you are reading right now. Although she doesn’t quite get instagram yet (if all words have hashtags, why not leave the #hashtags?) she enjoys contributing to Greenstory. Claim to fame: although she cannot even whistle, she came up with the idea of music pages for GreenBook. As entrepreneur she offers her services.

Crazy innovator

Kaim is the one making sure that we keep ahead of ourselves: orders, packaging, design, he’s on it. While busy scheming big changes he is also watching over our internal communication, which is not the easiest of tasks considering that our GreenTeam keeps moving (literally, when it comes to cities in the world) so almost everything is organised online. He always has a bunch of new product ideas in his head, so if you have a crazy innovative idea then he’s the one to talk to.

Green wizard

Yagmur initiated the launch of Greenstory after a search for sustainable school supplies in high school. The rest is history: Yagmur is heading the team, staying in touch with Greenstory users, bloggers and other extended family in the Community. With her Bachelors of Science in sustainable innovation, she is actively greening our production and service processes. Curious? Read all about our impact. Get in touch with Yagmur for business or collaboration enquiries.
