Win a selection of environmentally friendly stationery from Memo etc

I may have mentioned my love of Stationery just a few time but clearly my subtle hints have not fallen on deaf ears as this week my poor overworked postman arrived with a box of supplies with a difference in honour of back to school week. Memo etc, the online office supplies store, have all the usual biros and printer cartridges but what they’ve sent me is part of their eco-friendly ‘Remarkable’ range which is created from recycled materials.

There’s a pencil case made from an old car tyre, recycled leather notebooks, colouring pencils made from cd cases and even rulers and biros that used to be corn on the cob. How cool is that? Here’s E putting some of them through their paces.

The boys love the idea that they used to be something completely different and I was really impressed that they still seemed really good quality, living up to my exacting standards. πŸ˜‰

I have a family sized box of goodies to give away including:

  • A pencil case
  • A hardback note book
  • 3 leather cover spiral notebooks
  • A pack of felt tips
  • A pack of coloured pencils
  • A pack of biros
  • Rulers

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning then just leave me a comment sharing what you think is the most vital stationery item in your life and record your entry in the rafflecopter widget below. Personally I’d be lost without at least three notebooks on the go at once. You can get all the usual extra entries and record those too. The give away will run until Monday 16th September 2013.

    my pen and a notebook…I’m always seeing things I want to research but never remember by the time I’m home!

  3. Martin Wallbridge says

    A pen that works would be nice every one I seem to pick up is either broken , chewed or out of ink and the kids still put them back in the pot.

    Pens, although I’d be lost without my diary (and yes, it’s one you write in). Am nagged about transferring it all to Outlook all the time but it’s just not the same!

  5. Erika Holt says

    A notebook, without a doubt. I am addicted to them! Always jotting and noting things!

    Good luck all!

    Thanks for a fab comp!

    My calendar, which hangs on the wall in the kitchen. All life is on the calendar from birthdays to dental appointments, school term dates to trips to the vet, if it is not on the calendar it doesn’t happen.

    Good old fashioned pencil! Long lasting and reliable! Perfect for everything from writing lists to doodling when you’re on hold on the phone!!

  9. Jacqui Osborne says

    If it counts as stationery, it’s my Kitchen Calendar. Absolutely everything goes on there & I can keep track of school events and holidays etc. Essential!

  10. Deborah Worrall says

    A notepad and pen set – I have a terrible memory and have to make lots of lists and notes to remind me of things.

  11. Wendy Tolhurst says

    The notebook I use at work – I’ve lost count of the number of times I have looked back in it to find out information I had previously noted.

  12. Patricia Avery says

    The Parker pen my parents bought for me 56 years ago for getting through the 11+. It has seen me through all the milestones of my life from my 1st year exams at secondary schools, through to retirement after 40 years of teaching.

  13. says

    Oh gosh, I am a bit of a stationery addict so it’s hard to pick just one item. But I’ll pick my Lamy fountain pen – I think having a nice pen to write with is pretty crucial.
    I do love the Remarkable range though – great reuse of materials.
