Karst Stone Paper – go back to the stone age with this paper

One of the first things that we learn about recycling or reusing is paper when we’re young. Don’t toss it if you can still write on it! If it’s done, put it into the recycle bin! But the best answer is not to use paper at all. Unfortunately, nothing is quite like it. Karst Stone Paper is saving trees by making pages out of stone.

This sounds like some Flintstones’ action but it’s not. The paper produced by using rocks is, mostly, just like normal paper made from trees. It’s lightweight and flexible. The biggest differences are that it’s waterproof, brighter, and doesn’t tear as easily.

The pages are sold in bound notebooks. Each metric tonne of Stone Paper saves 18 trees and 2770 liters of water over traditional paper. It is even completely recyclable. A really Earth friendly option for people who love putting pen to page. And bonus, there’s no grain so the pen just slides across it, smooth as ice. Each notebook is $29.95.


  • Trees can be replaced by new growth (and take CO2 out of the air in the process). Stone can’t. Are we sure this is a good idea?

    • Trees can be regrown and we’ve shared a good deal of innovations for planting them.

      This stone is recycled and has already gone through some manufacturing process which it is no longer good for one would presume.

      I don’t think any measure is meant to replace traditional paper so much as it is meant to slow down destruction so that our forests have time to regrow. Attack the problem form all angles.

    • I didn’t know the stone was recycled. I withdraw my comment.
