Introducing a chic, eco-friendly gift that really does keep on giving: Ecojot`s trendy, eco-friendly and socially responsible notebooks. Launched this year, Ecojot`s Buy One, We Give One campaign advocates children`s literacy in developing countries by donating one notebook for every one purchased. They're distributed directly to schools and students via three foundations -- Ve`ahavta, Free the Children, and the Stephen Leacock Foundation for Children.
The notebooks themselves? Entirely eco-friendly! The funky notebooks, colourfully designed by artist Carolyn Gavin, are made from 100% post-consumer waste, using vegetable-based inks and glues and biodegradable packaging. They`re also made in Canada, and at a biogas-fuelled mill.
Price: $17 (6"x9" Jumbo Journal, 150 pages); $10 (5"x7" journal, 80 pages); $5 (3"x4" notebook, 50 pages).
Available at: Grassroots, Midoco, Write Impressions, The Papery and more; visit www.ecojot.com for a full list of retailers across Canada.
