Boston startup Rocketbook looking to save trees with sustainable notebooks

August 1, 2018

Every year in the United States, about one billion trees worth of paper are thrown away. Boston-based startup Rocketbook is looking to change that with their sustainable notebooks for the digital age.

Their notebooks are re-usable indefinitely, and unlike a laptop, they won’t run out of charge halfway through the day.

While laptops may offer a paper-free alternative to note-taking, using them is not always convenient. Some professors ban them from classroom use, some people learn better if they write their notes rather than type them, and laptops require a charge to use so they can die mid-day.  

The Everlast notebook works by writing out your notes like normal and then scanning them to your phone using the connecting app. You can them email them or save them to Google Drive or Dropbox.

Then, since the Everlast’s synthetic paper is easily erasable with a damp cloth, you can re-use the same pages the next day and every day after that, saving some trees in the process.
