You Won’t “Poo-Poo” These Eco-Friendly Paper Alternatives

Who says paper has to grow on trees? As part of a continuing effort to provide eco-friendly items in our stores, we’re carrying a variety of paper products that come from places you would not expect.




Stonepaper Spiral Notebooks



Stonepaper – No, we’re not referring to Flintstone-style stone tablets but rather paper made from a combination of mineral powder and non-toxic resin. The production of Stonepaper uses half as much energy as traditional paper production and no water, trees, or bleaching chemicals whatsoever. This results in paper that is tear resistant as well as water, grease, and oil-proof. In addition, it’s 100% recyclable and 100% degradable.  The unique texture is perfect for exceptional writing – definitely something to write home about!






PooPoo Elephant Paper



PooPoo Paper – This paper is made from…exactly what the name suggests. But before you brush this off as gross, take a minute to understand how this paper promotes innovation and sustainability. Animals – like elephants, horses, and pandas – live primarily off of fibrous vegetation. Therefore, their waste consists of a lot of intact fiber! It is rinsed and boiled to a pulp and then bolstered with other natural fibers. Natural and edible food coloring mixtures are used to dye the pages which are then crafted into raw sheets and rolls. All of the products are both odorless and recycled!





CaneFields Fiber Paper



CaneFields – Talk about a sweet deal – CaneFields eco-friendly paper is made from sugar cane fiber (bagasse). This agricultural residue is easily accessible and produces high-quality fiber paper. CaneFields focuses on sustainability, social responsibility, and the preservation of our ecosystem by limiting greenhouse gas emissions and utilizing green methods of manufacturing.

Going green can begin in places you might not expect. Interested in trying one of these alternative papers? Swing by your on campus bookstore and try one out for yourself!
