VENT for Change, the sustainable stationery brand that protects the planet and supports children’s education projects worldwide, has launched its new recycled Notes collection for Summer 2020.
Made entirely in the UK the new notebooks are made from 100 per cent recycled paper and card. The packs of three recycled pencils are made in the company's own pencil factory near Stourport-on-Seven from recycled single use plastic. Available in three natural themes; Olive, Earth and Coral the designs work as individual ranges or can be mix and match. The books come lined or plain with 50 sheets (100 pages).
"Coming out of the COVID 19 situation people have realised how important it is that we protect the planet and look after one another." Commented Evan Lewis, founder of VENT for Change.
"Every item in our range is made with the environment in mind and from the sale of every item we support children's education projects worldwide. Looking after people and planet has been at the heart of everything we set out to achieve." continued Lewis. The new Notes collection follows the recent launch of its Make a Mark range of books made with recycled leather covers and FSC paper. VENT is one of a growing number of conscientious brands that combine beautifully designed products with an ethical purchasing option for its customers. Set up by social and environmental entrepreneur Evan Lewis, Bristol based VENT for Change has focused heavily on high street retailers as its route to market and more importantly ambassadors for the brand message and philosophy.
VENT also organises a nationwide Global Education Day called Share a Pencil Day. Since 2017 more than 150,000 UK school children signed up to take part. Every one learning about the importance of education and how millions worldwide are missing out. VENT also runs its Ambassadors for Change programme. Volunteers leaving the UK to work overseas are given FREE pencils to hand them out in schools or directly to children wherever they're going.
