Notebooks are a back to school staple. Ecojot.com, which is based in Ontario, provides a variety of notebooks and other paper products, including calendars, jounals and sketchbooks. What makes them different though is that all of their stationary products are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Not only are their products eco-friendly but they're also fun! Designer Carolyn Gavin gets inspiration from different artistic genres found in her travels and varying facets of life. I was sent the MP3 red notebook. My kids love music so they really liked the design on the front. the notebook is really good quality. I can't stand when the spirals aren't done well and the paper gets caught or the pages won't turn. I didn't have any pf those problems with the ecojot notebook. Another thing I love about this company is that they give back through their GIVE program.
With the purchase of a jumbo journal, ecojot will give a workbook to a child in need. This is important because many children in devolving countries can't attend school becasue they can't afford the basic supplies. Ecojot helps with that. On August 11th Ecojot is hosting a GIVE to the Children Concert. At this concert, they will announce the winner of a contest they have going on right now. Here are some details from their website: "Submit a slideshow documenting your most creative work using an Ecojot Jumbo Journal. Feel free to display only the pages you wish to share but be sure they're your most creative. Whether it be a drawing, poem, story, paper art or a list of interesting things to do we want to see it and share the art of writing.
- Slideshow should be no more than 2 ½ minutes long and no shorter than 30 seconds
- Optional: background music that is appropriate to your JJ content
- Submit your slideshow to us via email at email@example.com and please include your full name, contact information and a short blurb about yourself
