Who is Paper on the Rocks?
Environmentally friendly stationery. That’s them in a nutshell.
The longer version ? Paper on the Rocks use tree-free, kind-to-resources paper, made from construction and agricultural waste to make circular and sustainable notebooks of the highest quality. Designed for smooth writing, doodling, and drawing.
Ideal for writers, creatives, professionals, and anyone that wants to change the world by the stroke of a pen.
Meet Anne, founder of Paper on the rocks.
“It was always my intention to not just start ‘any’ company. When I witnessed all the dirty ways in which people produce – and sell – products, I knew we could do better. We HAVE to do better.
When I was twelve years old, I desperately wanted to become a writer, to inspire people to keep on dreaming. And I kind of feel like that’s what I ended up doing. Only from a different angle. At Paper on the Rocks, we produce the tools that help people to keep on dreaming, writing, drawing and sharing thoughts.”
5% of the team’s time, services and your purchases are put towards reforestation efforts and natural reserve protection initiatives.
