Most notebooks are spiral bound with a laminated paper cover. This makes them very hard to recycle. So they end up in the landfill instead. Luckily, I've found a company that agrees and makes zero waste notebooks.
Meet Wisdom Supply Co. They make 5 different types of notebooks - wide ruled, college ruled, sketchbook (blank), graph quad 4x4, and storybook. We use the wide ruled notebooks and love them. I even send my kids to school with these instead of the requested spiral bound ones. I'm such an Eco Rebel, lol! No teacher has complained. And if asked, I told my kids to say their mom only buys eco-friendly stuff.
I know a lot of school supply lists also ask for different colored notebooks. To make this happen, I let my kids draw on the cover in the requested color. If they don't want to, I create a thick red, yellow, green, or blue stripe across the font for them.
When you need to stock up on notebooks, skip the spiral bound ones. Head to Wisdom Supply Co. and choose their zero waste notebooks instead. When they are all filled out, they are super easy to recycle or backyard compost.
