What is reclaimed paper?
Reclaimed paper is perfectly usable yet unused paper rescued from the waste stream before it is thrown away or recycled.
Recycling programs are great and well-intentioned. However, paper recycling is a chemical and energy-heavy process - it helps us reduce our need for virgin wood fiber which is great, but what if we can delay that process even further? Paper fibers can go through the recycling process roughly 5-7 times before the fibers break down and need to be retired. Worse, there is no real way to tell how often paper fiber has been recycled until it enters the pulping stage. Pulping is the process of breaking down the used paper into pulp, which consists of separating the paper fibers and removing any contaminants. During this stage, the fibers are subjected to mechanical and/or chemical treatments to separate them and create a pulp slurry. Only then do we know the fibers' quality and strength - if the fibers have undergone significant degradation, they are deemed unsuitable for further recycling.
By rescuing and reclaiming unused yet perfectly usable paper BEFORE it enters the recycling or waste stream, our impact on the environment and Mother Nature becomes much more impactful. After all, we made the paper in the first place - we might as well use it to its fullest potential.
Where do you get your paper?
All of our paper comes from a variety of sources in the US. Through relationships and donations from the creative community, architecture firms, the printing community, schools, and national and local businesses, we discover and rescue discarded and/or unused paper headed for the waste stream. We curate it, sort it, and turn it into a high-end, creative product through pure creative alchemy. The result is a unique product built for creatives, builders, writers, and notetakers that turn traditional ideas of creation and ideation on their heads. Our notebooks, journals, sketchbooks, and paper products are truly one-of-a-kind and eco-friendly, with a wide variety of high-quality 100% reclaimed paper and stock types inside. We strongly believe that Resketch can help unlock creativity with a sense of discovery and play by providing an unexpected and fluid medium that gently challenges you.
