Two big-hearted stationers we love here at Old Green are:

PORT WEST: Built from 100% recycled paper and made in the UK. Their passion for sustainability is matched with their drive for social justice; their Create for Creativity line donates profits to NGO Article-25 (an architectural organisation which works to build housing, schools, hospitals, clinic and other essential buildings across Asia and Africa)

JUNGLEY: Vegan stationers with stunning notebooks wrapped in LEAVES! Sustainable materials include upcycled tyre trucks, banana leaves and lotus leaves. This brand is on a mission to create items in harmony with nature, without harming animals or the environment, and work with local creative communities for ethical pricing. They are planning to build 1 million trees – and every sale helps with this goal!
