No living creature, not even a tree, was harmed in the making of these lovely artist journals produced by Brooklyn-based company Five and a Half.

These sustainable journals are made from sugar cane stalk fibers and post-consumer recycled paper. The canvas covers feature original photography by Five and a Half.

Made with writers, illustrators, designers and artists in mind, the journals are suitable for ink, paint, pastel, charcoal and graphite.

Implications - The environmental movement is appealing to consumers for a number of reasons. Not only does it promote itself as protecting the planet, but it also provides consumers with the opportunity to make an impact on their own lives and the lives of others. Businesses that create eco-friendly products will see great returns as they will empower their clients.
