This is a part of my notebook collection.
Yes, I have a problem with notebooks and everything that involves paper that wasn't used on both sides.
Paper comes from trees, living beings that deserve our respect. Therefore I have big guilt-trips when throwing away notebooks that I own for years and I never used them or single sheets of paper that I didn't use on both sides.
Right now I'm using an old 2014 agenda that was offered to me at my previous job. I try to use it to draft articles, make todo lists and sketch.
The great thing about it, is that it is "forcing me" to be more creative in my metro trips to work. Giving me a small break to be disconnected from the world!
I found out in the Stuttgart Airport bathroom that I'm not the only one with this paper=trees conscience. There is a Guerilla Paper Waste Elimination Project out there.
These Come from Trees is the project that is trying to save a couple hundred thousand trees a year. Sticking a sticker in the right place and hoping that the person using the paper towels to dry their hands in the public bathroom, thinks twice before getting an extra load of paper and wasting it!
Check out this guy, that saved tons of paper just by teatching us how to clean our hands. His name is Joe Smith and it's worth your time.
The project has also a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/These-Come-From-Trees-Guerilla-Paper-Waste-Elimination-Project-15761364321/
