This post was requested a little while ago so I’ve been doing some research to bring you some information about where you can get some environmentally friendly stationery.
They have a good range
of pens, made from a range of materials including recycled bottles, cardboard,
A really great range of
recycled paper products and pens/pencils. They have files, office organisers
(e.g. pen pots), envelopes, and packing materials.
They say, “Add a touch of eco
friendly low carbon technology to your school and office with these things to
help you be more sustainable and environmentally-friendly: recycled paper, a stapleless stapler, water powered calculators, solar phone chargers, USB rechargeable batteries, recycled stationery, sustainable storage solutions and computer energy savers that combine technology with sustainability. Get ready for the new school year with
recycled and FSC certified eco friendly stationery: pens, pencils, notepads and
pencil cases, and organic school wear.”
They have a money back guarantee and free delivery on
orders over £50. There are fineliners, permanent markers, and coloured pencils;
they seem to have the widest range that I’ve seen.
Their website says:
Pens made from recycled
plastic, recycled paper, corn & vegetable derivative bioplastic,
wood and more… your choices for a logo eco pen have never been this good. Eco
pens are priced competitively with traditional pens. We are featuring
over 50 earth friendly pens- one of them is right for your next trade show, job
fair or event. Budget pleasing prices from under $0.50 each to over $8.00 a pen
means there is no reason not to “go green”.
They also sell recycled mechanical pencils (something that

notebooks, as well. There are even some notebooks available that are made from
stone so they have no wood pulp and are recyclable and photodegradable. You can
see these notebooks in particular here.
However, it looks like they might only come in industrial boxes (e.g. 100 in a
There are retractable, and cardboard stick pens available
here. Their prices seem very reasonable.
We all know about this, the paper products made from poo.
The site says, “POOPOOPAPER™ products are handcrafted, natural, tree-free,
recycled, upcycled, odorless (of course), functional, memorable, unique paper
and stationery products.” If you’re interested, the poo “comes from a variety
of different fiber-eating vegetarian animals such as elephants, cows, horses,
moose, pandas, donkeys and others - all of which eat a lot, poo a lot and
generate a plenty of fiber-filled waste material which serves as the base of
our pulp mixture from which we craft our papers.” It looks like their products
are available internationally (which not all of these shops are). It lets you
shop by the item (e.g. notebooks or journals) or by the type of poo (e.g. panda
Another wide range of products, including sticky notes
(which I didn’t see on any of the other sites). Some of the items appear to be
sold individually, while other items, like pens and pencils are sold in bulk
and are thus expensive.
