Greener notepad solutions reusing 100% used paper
Second Life Paper was founded on the simple principle of reusing rather than recycling to produce products. In August 2011, Jason Pfeifer of Saint Cloud, Minnesota discovered the added environmental benefits of reusing, while producing a practical consumer product. Since inception, we have and continue to save numerous reams of used paper, delaying recycling and providing cleaner, greener products.
Our partners provide Second Life Paper their used paper printed on one side or less that we use to produce our products. Reclaimed paper is sorted, printed, bound with water-based, eco-friendly glue, and cut into appropriate product sizes. The entire sheet of paper is used, ensuring no waste is produced, while any unusable paper collected is either recycled or shredded and given to the local humane society. Our process and products help save the environment by delaying recycling, which consumes more energy and raw materials than reusing items, as well as displacing products made with new or recycled paper.
