We scribble stuff down constantly, whether it’s a quick reminder, a note for someone or lecture notes when your MacBook battery falls flat, you need that instant info-grabbing outlet. So quick comes out the notebook, the black ink pen and scribble we go - logic right? But what if I told you that there’s a more eco-friendly option you can go for in your troublesome note-taking needs?
The Rocket Book is your instant answer, because a handwritten note is sometimes the only option. The Rocket Book system is a modern take on handwritten notes, it’s a great way to follow your classes, conduct your interviews and contribute to meetings without creating that unwanted ‘waste’ element. Although paper is the least of our worries when it comes to our planet’s wellbeing, it’s still a waste when all those notes, minutes and important points are chucked away as soon as you’re ‘done’ with them.
The way the Rocket Book works is rather simple, it’s made from a some futuristic-technology-material that is rip free and totally reusable. All you have to do is write as you normally would, using a Pilot FriXon ink pen, and you’re free to ease the material once you’re done with it. It’s super clever, super convenient and super eco.
Let’s say you wrote a couple of key points for your last Femie interview with that really cool dude on your favourite TV show, yeah, you know the one… well you’ve written up the article, your editor’s approved it and the final version is live. Your handwritten scribbles are far from useful at this stage, so you can just use a damp cloth to wipe your text away. Waiiiiiiit! Take a picture first!
No seriously, if you scan your the pages of your Rocket Book, you can save them to the cloud of your choice, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive and other storage systems are totally compatible with Rocket Book. So you can save your notes, organise them into folders, reuse your pages and never buy a notebook again. Don’t believe me… no problem, kids are the most innocent in their judgement of ‘stuff’, here’s what 11 year old Skyler had to say about the Rocket Book.
“I love my Rocket Book, it’s so good because it’s light and easy to carry around plus it last forever! I chose it over paper because its not as wasteful as paper so it creates less pollution overall - and it’s less stressful because you never run out of paper in class.”
Get your research in and make the choice on your own judgement, there’s a variety of options out there, some cheaper, some way more expensive, this one, just like Goldilocks’ porridge seemed ‘just right’.
