About Paper on the Rocks

An activist stationery company that smashes a wasteful industry to pulp and then makes great things out of it – that’s us! Why are we doing this? Well for one, we like a good challenge. And speaking of challenges…

The paper industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world. Grinding down forests and swallowing unimaginable amounts of water, oh and don’t forget the tons of CO² emissions added to the mix. Needless to say it is in all our best interest to explore alternatives. Luckily, great alternatives are up for grabs.

Secondly, we are passionate about anything paper related. Writing, drawing, doodling, coloring… You name it, we love it. Producing paper products designed with an eye for detail, with that elusive book smell, touch and feel.

To give our clients the best notebook experience humanly possible we’ve wrapped up all of the above in one solid solution. But that’s not all. We donate our time, services and at least 5% of your purchases to reforestation efforts and natural reserve protection initiatives.  We don’t just ‘make’ products, we aim to improve an industry.

In order to further catalyze our impact we are currently looking for a hands-on business controller who can help us further expand and professionalize our organization.
