Roaring Spring Paper Products Review & Giveaway

   If you have been around and paying attention you may have noticed, I kind of have a thing for writing. Paper, Pens and I, we are besties. I love taking notes and writing things down, doodling, making lists and just any time I have an excuse to put pen to paper I take it. Sadly, I can only imagine how many trees I have gone through in my lifetime so far. I became aware of my overuse of paper products and tried to cut back by going as digital as I possibly could, but it doesn't have that same feel as having something tangible in your hands that you can take with you. 
        Roaring Springs Paper Products has really done their best to produce amazing products and save some trees while they were at it. Established in 1887, the company has grown from a tiny 20 person operation to over 250 employees.
       Using Recycled materials, they are 97% Landfill free and divert 2.7 million pounds of scrap material from landfills. They save 25,889 trees, 11 million gallons of water, 4,690 cubic yards of landfill space, 6.4 million kilowatts of electricity, and eliminate 93,809 pounds of air pollutants.*

 Cross Over Book
One of their brand new additions to their line of awesome products is a cross over book. It's double sided so you can use both sides of the paper. So you have one side that's Landscape, one side that's portrait and when back-lit the paper becomes graph paper. In standard 8x11 and recycled paper  it really is an amazing idea and a unique product.
 Coloured Landscape Pads
  This three pack of pads really come in handy. They are smaller that traditional paper in an 8x6 wide landscape format in various colours. Made from recycled paper they are good to be kept in places where you may need to take down quick notes. They allow you to work in Computer screen dimensions and are the perfect size for tossing in a backpack or briefcase, or sitting near your home phone or computer. 
Enviroshades 1 Sub, 3 Sub, and 5 Sub 
The Genesis Enviroshades subject notebooks are made with another type of recycled process, Sugarcane. 
Their sugarcane paper uses less energy and water than it takes to recycle old paper. Produced from the residue of the sugarcane crop, their sugarcane paper boasts a quality, brightness, and writing ease that exceeds traditionally recycled paper every time.* You can really tell these are quality notebooks but what you CAN'T tell is that they are made any different than any other paper subject notebook. It just feels like paper. They come with dividers and pockets, as well as perforated sheets for easy removal. 
Landscape Wide Pads White & Yellow
   The landscape pads come in a wide 11x9.5 sheet that is perforated at the top. I have the college ruled but they also come in wide ruled in the white as well as the canary yellow. These are the big brothers to the Jr. landscape 3 pack (shown above) that I received and are also available in grid paper. These are great when you need more than just a little space for writing notes, lists or letters.
