Cool idea, poor execution. Wait until the make a 2.0 version of this product.

Cool notebook and awesome idea for reducing waste. However I feel like I’m using some beta product that can use a lot of improvement.
The spiral rings are somewhat flimsy and arrived in the packaging bent and squished. Also not big enough to hold a pen in like typical notebooks.
The paper doesn’t feel natural to write on. It’s like you’re writing on a white board with erasable marker. That said, it smudges VERY easily, especially for a lefty. So I have to write in a specific way which honestly over time will probably lead to wrist and hand pain.
Erasing is amazing and really works with a spray of water and the provided cloth. I kind of wish they provided a cloth holder in the notebook so you can bring it around. Also a mini spray bottle would be nice.
But the one thing that really bothered me was the ink transferring to other pages. After placing the notebook in a backpack with other items, when I arrived home and opened it, the ink transferred all over the place. This may be because I placed the notebook between two books, but still horrible when you didn’t get to scan the pages.
Would not recommend, but I’m sure in the future they’ll hopefully make a 2.0 version that will solve these issues.
