Back to School - Review and Giveaway: ecosystem Notebooks and Planners



Oh! The back to school needs!
The list is long; pens, pencils, binders, computers (?!) and notebooks.

Well, I have found a product that makes that last one simple, easy, eco-friendly and FUN.
What?! You don't believe me?
It's true!

Just check out these cool notebooks, journals and planners from ecosystem...

I am in LOVE with the colors!


Are they not gorgeous?
The colors! The colors! But that is not all these beautiful books have to offer.
Oh no!

Read on, my bloggy friends, read on:

With a mandate to protect the environment, ecosystem journals, planners, and notebooks were developed with only 100% post-consumer recycled paper. In fact, by using this paper in 2009, ecosystem will have saved* 3,046 full-grown trees, 1,299,751 gallons of water and 283,974 pounds of greenhouse gases. Every component that makes up an ecosystem book has been researched to ensure the most environmentally friendly materials or production methods are being used. And because the product is completely made in the US, its ecological footprint is minimized (shipping between shorter distances) and paper suppliers confirm all paper used is 100% post-consumer recycled fiber.

From its inception, ecosystem was designed to empower environmentally aware product owners, be they recycling gurus or new to the process. Each item has a unique book ID number, which may be used here to track a book's origins, learn how they are environmentally-friendly, and to find out exactly how to recycle each book.

Now tell me that is not too cool for words?
Erm, words you can write in your very own journal.
Uh-huh.
Because ecosystem has journals and planners to suit just about any need.
Check it out HERE.
You can basically build your book!
You can pick your color (I know. Not the MOST important part, but hey, life should be colorful!), pick your size, pick your style and pick your inserts.

Totally cool!

Write away!


If you're looking for notebooks, please take a look at Overstock with these coupons.

For all of you budding authors out there the ecosystem Author Journal is just the ticket; a slew of lined pages to start that book or just jot down your thoughts as they come to you.

I was sent three different ecosystem notebooks.
I KNOW!
You are jealous. I can tell.
But I am not greedy.
I'm only keeping three of them.

Heh.

I wouldn't do that.
No! I am going to tell you how much I adore my purple (I was going to go all pink but I do love purple too) notebook.

And I do. It has the flexi-cover and it is strong but soft if you know what I mean.
It is easy to open and use and the bookmark comes in very handy.
It fits easily in my purse/backpack. (I use a soft, quilted bag that is combination of the two).
Of course you all know how THRILLED I am with the eco-friendly nature of this product. EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING is green (not the color - the concept. heh) and it was all made in the good ole USA.

Mothers will love the ability to track the notebook with the lost and found registry available on the site. I think this is pretty cool too but I know some people will not make use of it. Nothing says you have too but if you are prone to losing things it's a good thing to be able to have your stuff found.

Now I am sure you are all wondering about those other two notebooks I mentioned.
Bwahahaha!
Yes, I am going to give them away to two lucky readers.

I have one small book in black and one medium book in pink (both blank journals).
How do you win? It's easy!
But first some rules:

US and Canada only
