Regular tree paper vs stone paper. Previously, we spoke about the difference between the two, and in this article, we will talk about why it might be time to switch to stone paper notebooks, which offer a variety of benefits. Here are five reasons to switch to stone paper notebooks:

1. Environmentally Friendly

Stone paper is made from calcium carbonate, which is a natural mineral found in rocks. This means that it is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional paper, which is made from trees. And as we know, we cut down over 3 BILLION TREES in a year to satisfy the demands of paper in the world. By switching to stone paper notebooks, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the environment by saving many, many trees.

2. Water-Resistant, Oil-Resistant

Stone paper is typically water-resistant and oil-resistant, which means that it won't get damaged if it gets wet. There are thousands who would benefit from this because it is perfect for those who like to take notes or journal or even sketch while enjoying their morning coffee on the go or while camping, or for those who like to write outside in the rain. Yup, writing in the rain is a thing.

3. Highly Durable

Stone paper is also more durable than traditional paper. It is tear-resistant, fold-resistant, and does not crease like regular paper, which means that your notes and journal entries will last longer if not forever. This is especially useful if you like to keep your old notebooks for sentimental reasons or if you refer back to them for inspiration, or even if you need to document things that need to be kept away for a long time.

4. Smudge-Proof

Stone paper is smudge-proof, which means that the ink won't smudge or smear like it does on traditional paper. Had trouble in the past using gel pens which are notorious for smudging on regular paper? Well, not anymore. 

5. Lightweight

Contrary to common belief, stone paper notebooks are actually lightweight. Although they are called stone paper, they aren’t exactly rocks bound into a notebook. They typically weigh less than traditional notebooks, which means they won't weigh down your bag as much and can be comfortable to carry around wherever you go.
