About MOYU

What are MOYU’s plans for the future?

There is a dire need for change within the paper industry on a global scale, and we want to do something about it. We decided to launch stone paper notebooks within The Netherlands to reduce paper waste, but we want more. We want to raise global awareness of the urgency to hack away at single-use paper and transition towards an industry in which stone paper is the new worldwide norm by making MOYUs available in all countries. Want to be a part of this change? Become a shareholder in MOYU.

About MOYU

What does MOYU mean?

MOYU originates from the idea of making a modular notebook that lasts for the rest of your life. The word is an abbreviation for Modular, with a beautiful extra layer that in Chinese MO stands for “magical” and YU for “place”. For us, this magical place refers to the world full of green we wish our planet to be. And we hope to contribute to this world by making our reusable stone paper notebooks.

Stone Paper

How is stone paper produced?

Limestone, a waste product of the marble mining industry and one of the most available resources in the world, is collected and ground into stone dust. This dust is bound with HDPE, melted, and pressed into sheets. These stone paper sheets have a cradle-to-cradle certificate, which means they are much easier to recycle, aka more eco-friendly, since it needs shorter recycling cycles due to the fact that the stone paper contains no “fibers”. More about stone paper.

Stone Paper

Is stone paper eco-friendly?

Stone paper is extremely eco-friendly since the core material is limestone, a widely available material. It means that two of the most important resources on the planet - trees and water - are not needed to produce paper sheets. More about stone paper.

Stone Paper

What is stone paper?

Stone paper consists of 80% limestone dust, 20% HDPE plastic, and a special coating that is applied to make it print-ready. What's magical about stone paper production is that no trees, water, or chemicals are used, it requires 85% less energy, and it produces 65% less CO2 emissions.

Stone Paper

Why is stone paper better than tree-pulp paper?

Stone paper notebooks rock the Life Cycle Assessments with a 6,3% compared to single-use paper notebooks! It means that if you calculate the CO2 emissions equivalent, MOYU is almost 20 times less polluting than using a regular tree-pulp paper notebook. More about stone paper.

How to MOYU

Can I recycle my MOYU notebook when it wears out?

The best part of a MOYU is that the stone paper is 100% recyclable. You just need to make sure the stone paper makes its way back to the factory for another life. Is your notebook older than 5 years old? See how to give your MOYU a second life.

How to MOYU

Can I use regular pens to write in my MOYU notebook?

No, a special MOYU notebook needs a special MOYU pen that contains erasable PILOT Frixion ink. You could write on your MOYU with a regular pen, but only for things you will not need to erase. For example, you could draw a canvas on a page using a pen, then write in it and erase as many times as you want using your MOYU pen. Need to refill your pen? Buy extra MOYU pen refills.

How to MOYU

How do I wipe the ink off my notebook?

If you want to harness the power of erasing stone paper, take your MOYU cloth, aka magical ink wiping device, dampen it with water, and wipe the ink away. And, if you happen to be someone who tends to be stuck without water when you need it the most, we recommend you stick on your MOYU one of our mini water sprays.

How to MOYU

How does MOYU work?

It's simple. You take one of our erasable stone paper notebooks and write on it with a MOYU pen. When you are ready to write something else, you erase the ink with a damp cloth and start writing on it all over again. If you want to save your notes, we recommend you use one of the free scanning apps. More on how to MOYU.

How to MOYU

How long will my MOYU notebook last?

In theory, you can erase the pages in MOYU stone paper notebooks an endless amount of times. However, at some point, you will start to see the page quality go down. The last time we tested, we managed to erase a page 500 times before we began to see any wear. When it comes to the cover, it will depend on how carefully and intensely you use the notebook. Hardcovers tend to last 2-3 years, while the premium hardcovers go up to 5 years. Curious about the different cover designs? Take a look at our erasable notebook collections.

How to MOYU

What types of pages does the notebook have?

After years of experimentation, we found the perfect page combination that varies with each notebook size. The types of pages used are to-do lists, week planners, lines, blank, dotted, and square grids. For more details per notebook type check our erasable notebook collections.

Do I get a pen and cloth with my MOYU notebook?
