what you can look forward to:


Local is Lekker


Our goal is to supply you with sustainable products. Therefore, our products will be made from as earth friendly materials  as possible, such as: bamboo, FSC certified wood, local products, plastic free items, zerowaste items etc.! 

We have made our best effort to supply you with locally sourced material as far as possible. Our potential suppliers are local companies and the raw materials are local as well as imported. 

Minimalwastesa has teamed up with the Two Oceans Aquarium's turtle rehabilitation centre! A portion of our money made on our notebooks will go towards funding a rescued turtle's stay at the aquarium. Read more about it on their website: 

why earth friendly stationery?

I'm sure if you've found your way here, you are passionate about doing your bit to save this planet and already know a bit about our current plastic crisis. Over the past few years, we have noticed more and more people becoming aware of plastic pollution and its effects on the environment, animals and us humans! South African companies have come up with amazing plastic-free alternatives to items such as plastic shopping bags, straws, coffee cups and plastic water bottles. Plastic pens, pencils, rulers etc. are not recycable and most are not reusable either! When you're finished with your stationery, it ends up in a landfill or in the ocean, where it stays forever. Therefore, every single pen ever used is still on this planet, scary? So by choosing earth friendly staionery, you are minimising your contribution to plastic waste and are saving sea turltes in the process!
