These pretty recycled notebooks from Portugal are made from post-consumer recycled paper, and embedded with various materials, depending on which colour notebook you choose (lavender buds, fibres from almond plants or coffee grounds). Ideal to stash away and write notes throughout the year, these books save trees, as no trees are chopped down to make the paper. Each journal is 140 pages, choose from blank, dotted (bullet journal) or ruled. The cover is recycled, notebook sent in a biodegradable sleeve.
FSC sustainable paper comes from ‘sustainable forests’. But that usually means old-growth forests are chopped down (which are homes for native wildlife) and replaced with fast-growing saplings that usually are grown with chemicals. So always look for recycled paper options when you can (ideally from post-consumer waste).
