How do I recycle the products?

You have three good options to recycle your Stone Paper Notebooks or shipping material.

  1. Place it in waste-to-energy bin. We detail the environmental footprint of each and every one of our products, and due to the fact that we only use recycled materials, you can with good conscience close the loop of the raw material and let it become energy.
  2. Place it in the plastic bin. Same logic as number one, different bin :)
  3. Let it degrade in nature. Stone Paper is not biodegradable, for that you need bacteria’s which our products does not contain. However, if you place it in nature, the sun and wind will gradually turn into egg shelves again. The sun’s rays have capabilities in its ultraviolet light (UV light) and infrared radiation which bring about the incorporation of oxygen molecules into the plastic, a process known as oxidation. As more and more oxygen intermingles with the polymer in the plastic, it becomes brittle and easier to break into ever diminishing pieces.
    When it fully degrades there are no micro-plastics as the resin oxidizes into 1.4ppm of Nitrous Oxide and 65ppm of CO leaving only calcium carbonate behind. Recent research has concluded there are no halogens present.

You have two good options to recycle your Natural Pen.

  1. Place it in waste-to-energy bin. We detail the environmental footprint of each and every one of our products, and due to the fact that we only use recycled materials, you can with good conscience close the loop of the raw material and let it become energy.
  2. Place it in the plastic bin. Same logic as number one, different bin :)

And please remember, it is better to buy a refill.
