In This Scenario, Rock Beats Paper

The paper industry is the fourth largest industrial energy user in the US.

Guess how much pollution is released each year when making paper? 10 million pounds? 50 million pounds? Give up? A staggering 200 million pounds of pollution is released every year just to make paper.

To help with the decrease in pollution, Karst, developed paper made of stone. It's made of calcium carbonate, a waste stone produced in mining. The stones are combined with a binding agent to make stone paper. The coolest part about this paper is that no water and no trees are needed to make these notebooks.

The paper is waterproof and tear-resistant AND leaves 60% smaller carbon footprint than traditional paper
