I’m kicking off my Back to the Dorms Event with Karst, which is a company that makes 100% Tree-Free Paper and Woodless Pencils. Nope, that’s not a typo, zero trees where harmed to make these products. Karst is doing the environment a great service, but they also have some really cool products. I like people and company’s think outside of or break the box, you end up getting something that not everyone else has. Karst will definitely liven up Back to School or even Back to the Office.
Notebook has a waterproof cover and the pages will keep from absorbing moisture, so it’s safe from the pesky inevitable coffee spills or if you wanna sit outside and write in the rain. Smooth textured pages and flat-lay binding ensure you have plenty of writing space when writing. Includes a back pocket to store all of your loose notes as you’ll be able to see in the video below.
Making Karst’s stone paper uses zero trees, zero water and generates zero waste. Instead recycled stone, non-toxic resin and solar power is used, creating a smoother, brighter and more durable paper than traditional paper.
Karst Stone Paper is Waterproof, 100% Recycled and Friction Free, 60% Carbon Emissions, No Bleach or Acids
This isn’t your everyday notebook, it’s something that can be used for your most private thoughts and feeling or your most important ideas and information. I decided to use mine as a journal. I haven’t had a journal since I was younger and had forgotten how good it feels to put pen to paper and write down your feelings, hopes and dreams. I love it.

2B Solid Graphite, Set of 5 Woodless Pencils where made to inspire and help you to become more creative, following the same design principles as their notebooks, Tree-Free.
Can be sharpened for crisp line work or made blunt for expressive strokes and subtle shading. The woodless construction allows versatility and the weight of the pencils feels natural in your hand whether you’re drawing, sketching or writing.
These are strong, durable pencils, tips don’t break as they would with a mechanical or cheap wooden pencil and they write great. The pencil itself is round and doesn’t have flat sides all around it like some pencils, that with the matte finish give you a much more comfortable and easier writing experience, without leaving any dents in the side of your fingers from writing with them. These things don’t change what it looks like on paper, as you can see in the above paper, it still looks like pencil, it’s just better and making them saved a lot of trees.
