We pour water over Stone Notebook
One tree is planted per notebook bought
We collaborate with OneTreePlanted to realise reforestation projects. With your Stone Notebook purchase, you plant one of the following trees in Ghana:
Ofram, used for temporary construction, canoes and paint.
Kusia, used for telephone poles, furniture, food and medicine.
Wawa, used for furniture, pencils and sculptures.
Traditional paper is usually made of wood, by pressing together moist fibres of cellulose pulp the material and then drying the sheets. The fibres shorten each time the paper is recycled. On average, the production of 1 metric ton of paper requires 17 trees, 25 m3 of water, 10,061 kWh of electricity and 2.57 m3 of oil. For white office paper, this is 24 trees. The recycled wood pulp is usually mixed with virgin wood pulp to maintain some quality.
Stone Notebook does not contain fibres and therefore the surface of its pages is smoother naturally.
Please make sure that your notebook ends up with type 2 plastics. Stone paper contains 20% HDPE, high-density polypropylene and thus it should not be recycled with wood pulp products such as newspapers or regular paper. Did you know that regular paper can only be recycled up to 6 times as the fibres become shorter and shorter? Stone Notebook is not biodegradable so please do not throw it in a household waste bin by accident. Although stone paper is compostable under commercial conditions (not in your back garden), it is a better use of resources to recycle the material again. Stone Notebook can potentially be indefinitely recycled when the material stays pure enough during the recycling process. Get in touch with GreenTeam if you require further assistance and we will be happy to help.
With the pen tried by GreenTeam no bleeding occurred. The writing can be seen slightly on the other side. We have not noticed smudging or bleeding on the other side of Stone Notebook pages. As the pages are waterproof the ink may take a bit longer to dry.
Stone Notebook is not heavier than a regular hardcover paper notebook of the same size. It looks and feels exactly the same as any other notebook, the pages are just as thin and they feel like very soft paper. Stone paper has a density range of 1.0-1.6g/m3, which is equal to, or slightly higher than regular paper.
Stone Notebook should specifically be recycled with plastics and not with paper. If you have a recycling station in your city which is for plastics only, that is perfect. If not, you can send it back to us to make sure it is properly recycled. As long as the pages are not confused with paper made of trees, no special process is required. Polyethylene + calcium carbonate can be recycled together as part of the plastic recycling cycle. Calcium carbonate is often used as an additive in plastics so it is already part of that same recycling cycle.
