At Rocketbook, we’re on a mission to transition the world to reusable paper. According to the EPA, landfills received 17.2 million tons of paper and paperboard in 2018. That’s…a lot. There has to be a better alternative to single-use paper. You guessed it: reusable paper!
All Rocketbook notebooks are endlessly reusable–just write, erase, and repeat (forever). The simple act of reusing a notebook can save trees worth of paper over time, in ways you might not have even thought of. Read on to learn how Rocketbook helps save paper to create a more sustainable future.
A̶l̶l̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ A Few Ways Rocketbook Saves Paper
Recyclable paper is great, but endlessly reusable paper is infinitely better. We wish we could list all the ways a Rocketbook notebook saves paper, but since the possibilities are infinite, you’d be reading this blog…forever. So instead, we’ll only cover a few ways Rocketbook helps save paper…
1. Bye-Bye Index Cards, Hello Cloud Cards
Does this sound like you?
- Hours of staring at index cards.
- Long nights memorizing what the mitochondria is (it’s the powerhouse of the cell).
- Years of emotional damage after the test when all the index cards are discarded, never to be used again.
Replacing traditional index cards with reusable Rocketbook Cloud Cards can stop this unnecessary waste of paper (and traumatic life experience). Like other index cards, Cloud Cards are 3” x 5” and perfect for studying. Unlike other index cards, Cloud Cards are endlessly reusable. You can scan Cloud Cards with the Rocketbook app to turn them into a digital pop-quiz for a clutter-free studying experience.

Instead of throwing away your deck of rocket science vocabulary words after acing the test, simply erase and reuse them for the next unit.

2. Transfer Your To-Do Lists to Rocketbook
- Over 50 billion sticky notes are sold each year. Unfortunately, because some recycling programs don’t accept sticky notes, tons of sticky notes end up in landfills every year.
- Every time you write a to-do list in your Rocketbook notebook, a tree cries a single tear of joy. (We have yet to confirm this.)
Never lose your to-do list again because it’s on a tiny scrap of paper–scan with the Rocketbook app and turn your to-dos into interactive checklists. Not only are you saving paper by using a reusable notebook for your many to-do lists, but you’re helping preserve your sanity (and your productivity).

3. Students of the Future, Use the Notebook from the Future
Let’s do some quick math
- (8 college semesters) x (5 subjects) = 40 notebooks
That’s about 39 too many, in our opinion. Save paper (both the notebook kind and the money kind) by using one Rocketbook notebook for your class notes. Write your notes, scan them to the cloud for safekeeping, and erase your pages to use them again and again.
Using a reusable Rocketbook notebook for classes will save trees, but don’t forget that it will also save your back. Say goodbye to the days of carrying around multiple different notebooks and binders for classes, and say hello to a light backpack and no need for physical therapy.

4. Write Your Screenplay with Rocketbook
Let’s say you’re writing out a screenplay. The screenplay may or may not be your ideation of the next film in the Star Wars universe, but that’s not important. The final version of your screenplay comes out at a whopping 200 pages–but that’s not all, because you go on to write 4 more Star Wars sequel screenplays (it doesn’t have to be Star Wars, that’s not important).
More math: (5 Screenplays) x (200 Pages each) = 10 notebooks
Why use ten notebooks when you could use just one Rocketbook notebook? Whether you’re writing a Star Wars screenplay (for the last time, it doesn’t have to be Star Wars), a novel, or a short story, using a Rocketbook notebook is the way to go.
Just scan it and keep your masterpiece in the cloud forever. Using the Smart Tags feature, you can organize your scans by chapter (or scene) to keep it all organized.

Here’s To a Future without Single-Use Paper
Those are just a few ways to save paper with Rocketbook, although the possibilities are endless. We hope this information has empowered you to use your Rocketbook notebook in creative ways to cut down on paper use.
We’d like to make reusable notebooks the norm. In our ideal utopian society, there would be no single-use paper, and everyone would have access to their very own Rocketbook notebook. That’s a lofty goal, but we believe in shooting for the stars.
