Ecojot: Eco-Paper Creating Educational Opportunities

December 11, 2013

Ecojot creates beautiful paper products, from cards to sketchbooks to baby books and more! Brother and sister co-founders Mark and Carolyn Gavin, make the perfect team complete with creativity, artistry, and social business savvy. Together, they’re protecting the environment and promoting literacy throughout Asia and Africa.

Ecojot’s paper is one hundred percent post-consumer recycled and their inks, dyes and glues are made from vegetables! You’re a little in love already, right? But this eco-friendly company does even more for the world. 

When Mark traveled to Kenya he saw James, a schoolboy, repeatedly erasing his work. When Mark asked why, James shared that he didn’t know when he might get another workbook.

Students around the world, like James, lack the school supplies needed to learn and flourish. Mark and Carolyn realized they could help, and with Ecojot’s one-for-one model students have received more than 250,000 workbooks and 44,000 pens! Buying from Ecojot protects the environment, invests in children’s education, and provides you with unique and high quality products.
