Prefer to use a battery-free notebook? The stylish cardboard journals from MIQUELRIUS are made from 100 percent postconsumer waste. Featuring 140 or 240 pages separated into four sections, with three-hole punches and perforations for tidy page removal, the whole notebook--including the spiral--is recyclable, so you can keep the virtuous cycle going even after you've aced your class.
