In a previous blogpost, we explained the production process of stone paper.

Now, we would like to show some figures regarding the exact resources saved when producing stone paper, in comparison to traditional pulp paper. Stone paper vs. pulp paper!

Why is stone paper more sustainable than (recycled) pulp paper?


To make these numbers a bit more insightful:


  • the water saved by producing stone paper instead of virgin pulp paper, is equivalent to taking a three-day long shower
  • the difference in CO2 emission is equivalent to driving around the world in a car driving 3.5 times
  • the energy saved with the production of one ton of stone, is the amount one average household uses over a two-month period.


As you can see, you save a lot of important resources when choosing stone paper over regular pulp paper. Even recycled pulp paper.

    Your table would be more convincing if you added the plastic used so that consumers could weigh all of the pros and cons. I think I would be more interested in switching to this type of “paper” if companies would have a more honest discussion about why they are better, even if they are not perfect.

      Dear Missy Jones, thank you very much for your comment, and valuable feedback. We will update our table in the near future, so that it contains more steps in the production process and is more fine-tuned to our specific products (Rockbooks). We are continuously working on improving our communication, and are always as transparent as possible about the elements that make up the stone paper we use. We also feel that this is an important part of bringing a new material to the market. Thank you again for your interest.
