Alternative materials to choose from.


Bamboo is a fantastic material for your notebooks. Not only is it natural and renewable but it also looks amazing. With the right design, a bamboo notebook looks like a high-quality retail item that competes with a leather or mole finish. Unlike those options, however, the natural look lets the user know that your brand cares about sustainability.


Cork is perfect for brands looking for that raw and bang-up to date natural look. Cork is very difficult to stretch and squeeze meaning it’s very durable. Cork notebooks, therefore, make a great companion for those doing their notes on the go.


We love merch that is recycled. Recycled plastic is an incredibly versatile material that we’re able to use for a huge range of products. Made from recycled plastic bottles and containers, RPET notebooks are a giveaway that reduces our waste. You might think that RPET is limited to hard plastic however there’s also RPET felt that gives a much softer feel!

Seed paper.

If you’re anything like us, you’ll fill up your notebook super quickly with notes, sketches and ideas. But what do you do when you’re finished with your notebook? Plant it of course! Seed paper notebooks are a great way to bring life to your garden with a variety of seeds available.

Coffee waste.

Ever wondered what happens to your coffee grounds after you’ve had your favourite brew in the morning? In most cases, unfortunately, the answer is not very much at all! Coffee notebooks and other products made from recycled coffee grounds are a great way to make use of this everyday waste. As a bonus, they look great too!

Recycled card and paper.

Branding ideas for your eco notebook.

  • Tell your notebook’s story. Adding a message like “made from recycled coffee grounds” to your print lets the user know about its eco-credentials and gives your notebook a story they will love!
  • Add a motivational message. Notebooks are often used as a desk buddy to write to-do lists and jot down messages at work so why not add something like “you’ve got this!” To the print to boost motivation and productivity.
  • If slogans aren’t your thing, simple branding is sometimes best on eco products. A discreet one-colour print or engraving of your logo makes for a quality product that your clients will love and hold on to.
