How Does Waterproof Paper Work? Reading 3 Reasons To Shop Sustainable Stationery 4 minutes

With awareness about environmental issues ever increasing, more and more people and companies are looking for tips on how they can do their bit to help. While it’s easy to get caught up in the idea of making huge changes to your lifestyle to help the planet, never underestimate the impact that small and simple shifts can make. 

One of the easiest ways you can make a difference on an everyday scale is by switching your choice of stationery manufacturer to a more sustainable one. After all, the stationery industry commands a significant amount of natural resources thanks to its reliance on trees for wood and paper, but there’s no reason why you can’t think planet-first with the emergence of more eco-friendly stationery options. Read on to discover exactly why you should choose to buy sustainable stationery. 

Protect The Environment

By choosing to use eco-friendly stationery, you can help to make an impact in trying to reduce the amount of plastics and other non-recyclable materials being disposed of and sent to landfill. Sustainable stationery is often manufactured using renewable materials such as eco-plastics. You can help do your bit at work or in school to reduce our environmental impact by choosing to make use of stationery that has been made with eco-friendliness in mind.

Recycle More Often

Most waterproof paper products are either made of synthetic materials like plastic or have been treated with a polymeric coating to give them their waterproofing and enhance their durability. Unfortunately, these synthetic paper products are not recyclable and go to total waste when they’re thrown out and end up in landfills. Fortunately, Rite in the Rain’s waterproof paper products are wholly natural and can be recycled in the same way as standard paper can. Additionally, all Rite in the Rain paper is sourced from certified suppliers from the Forestry Stewardship Council, which means that you can trust that our paper products have been manufactured with sustainability in mind.

Reflect Your Values

Even though small steps like changing where you source your stationery from may seem negligible in making a real difference, they go a long way to sending a powerful message. Using eco-friendly products in your daily life is a demonstration of your commitment to sustainable practices and highlights the importance you place on making responsible choices in your purchases. Whether it be for personal use or part of a company-wide effort, choosing to make use of sustainable stationery allows you to stand out from the crowd and be confident that you are helping to do your bit for the planet.
