Sustainable Notebook

  • A self-initiated challenge to make this notebook from 100% recycled materials
     
    The original project was a small, informational notebook to be given to Forum attendees, containing the schedule, important information, sponsor listings, and blank pages for note taking. Since the whole event was to be zero-waste and this was the only piece being printed, I decided to challenge myself to create a 100% recycled and truly sustainable notebook. 
     
    Sustainable attributes:
    - Informational pages printed on paper that is 100% PCW, PCF and made using biogas energy.
    - Note-taking pages trimmed from outdated letterhead.
    - Backed with 100% PCW chip board.
    - Bound with coil made from 100% PCW plastic.
    - Printed by a FSC-certified and environmentally-responsible printer.
  • Note-taking pages in the back of the book were trimmed from out-dated letterhead.
