Switching our everyday essentials to eco-friendly products is a great way to reduce our environmental impact and protect the planet. But it’s not just choosing reusable water bottles and food wraps. You can also choose green office supplies, recycled paper, fair trade guest books, and apparently, you can even get non-toxic biodegradable glue sticks made from almonds.
We might not have almond glue sticks but we do have some amazing elephant dung paper products as well as gorgeous notebooks and journals made from recycled cotton from green stationery company paper high.
Traditional photo albums might seem like a thing of the past and even many wedding albums come in photo book form. That doesn’t mean however that there isn’t still something magical about creating a holiday or wedding album, choosing the pictures, arranging the images into different spreads and adding handwritten captions.
The acid-free pages of the elephant dung albums (made with smooth paddy husk paper) are perfect for wedding photos or to use as memory scrapbooks for your travels. Each high-quality page has been interleaved with tissue paper to protect photo’s and the albums come in a beautiful box with a hand-finished brass elephant motif. We think these albums make a gorgeous gift for a wedding or other special occasion and would also make great guest books.
There are three sizes which can display up to 150 prints. The plain pages mean there are lots of options for both portrait and landscape photos. And we love that you could easily add pressed flowers, tickets, cards, and other mementoes to create a truly personalized custom album. Something that wouldn’t be possible with a printed photo book. These albums also look great on your coffee table and the unusual materials and design make them a great talking point.
The Paper high sari albums are also lovely wedding albums and perfect for taking with you to journal travelling adventures in scrapbook form. The recycled cotton paper is bleach free, acid-free and a joy to write on. Again the pages are interleaved with tissue paper to protect your precious photographs and as each cover are made from recycled saris they are all unique.
We also have a great range of recycled fair trade picture frames so you can pick the images you love most to have on display all the time.
We also have a great range of notebooks and journals that are much better looking and better for the environment and the people who make them than a standard office notebook.
The gorgeous genuine leather Celtic tree of life notebook has 125 pages of recycled cotton paper and is the perfect size for putting in your handbag. The combination of the hand-stitched spine and leather cover make this a durable notebook that will take a few knocks and the paper is really smooth so it’s lovely for writing or drawing.
Paper high also make the Sari journals in a range of sizes. Again these are really durable and the paper is made of recycled cotton making it silky smooth and perfect for journaling, doodling or scrapbooking as well as capturing ideas or writing notes when you’re on the phone.
The large elephant journal is the perfect size for a beautiful guest book at a wedding or to capture messages from friends at a birthday, anniversary, a leaving party or other special occasions.
And if you need a bit of inspiration from your stationery the ‘Life begins just outside your comfort zone’ and ‘Be the change you want to see’ notebooks will hopefully inspire you every time you reach for them. Fabric covers, leather plaques and rough cut edges on the handmade paper make these really lovely gifts for yourself or someone else.
The Elephant dung stationery set if a gorgeous way to revive the lost art of letter writing or would make gorgeous green wedding invitations or save the dates. The set comes with 20 A5 sheets of elephant dung paper and 10 paper envelopes. These really are green products as not only do they use recycled material in the form of elephant dung fibres and recycled paper but they encourage the protection of the elephants and make them a valuable resource to local communities.
If you need something to store your pens or pencils on your desk or out and about we have some lovely fairtrade pencil cases and pen pots made from recycled materials that will add a bit of colour while keeping your desk tidy and your pens all in one place.
The tamarind colouring pencils really are as beautiful as they look and make a lovely eco-friendly gift for kids. Perfect as stocking fillers or party bag stuffers they are made by a fair trade project in Thailand. The chunky size and tactile texture of the bark make them great for little hands.
