The cherry on top? They donate their time, services and at least 5% of purchases to restoration efforts and natural reserve protection initiatives. They have a beautiful range of nature inspired coloured notebooks to choose from so if you’re a stationery nut or you’re after a new notebook, write the way forward and check them out.
