Fra spild til rum for nye idéer

Scrap Pads are made from waste paper leftover after industrial print and paper production. Normally this paper would find its way to the recycling bin, however, by upcycling it directly into new products, Scrap Pads save the energy and emissions that would be required to reprocess it, as well as the resources to make similar products from scratch. Scrap Pad is our way of turning waste into space for new ideas.

about.

Our upcycling initiative

Scrap Pad was born to two architects running a small print shop in Aarhus. Tired of throwing out perfectly good paper, the architects began assembling scraps from their production into characteristic sketchpads that contained a mix of paper types...
 

Today Scrap Pad is joined by Munkedal paper mill - makers of the renowned Munken paper and one of the most environmentally friendly paper productions in the world. Munkedal is redirecting leftover Munken paper from industrial production into Scrap Pad products.
 
As the initiative grows, the focus of Scrap Pad remains the same - to reduce paper waste by imagining more creative uses for leftover paper.

Why leftover paper?


Every day large amounts of waste paper are produced as a result of industrial processes- e.g. print and paper production. This paper, also known as leftover paper, is often of extremely of high quality, however having no commercial value, is either thrown out or recycled.

Rather than treating leftover paper as a waste product, Scrap Pad takes advantage of the high quality paper by upcycling it directly into our products. This saves the energy and emissions normally required to recycle the paper, as well as, the raw resources required to make similar products from scratch.




Who do we source leftover paper from?


Scrap Pads are made in Aarhus using leftover paper sourced from local print shops and from nearby Munkedal paper mill in Munkedal, Sweden. With its own sustainably managed forests and leading practices regarding water use, Munkedal paper mill is among the most sustainable paper productions in the world. By sourcing leftover paper from local and sustainable sources, we wish to support only the most environmentally responsible paper in our products.




How did we start?


Scrap Pad was developed in Aarhus by two architects in the print shop Plotteriet. Originally, sketchpads of scrap paper were offered to customers as a way of reducing waste and giving back leftover paper as ''space for new ideas''. The Scrap Pads, as they were called, became so popular that demand for them soon outpaced Plotteriet's production of leftover paper. As a result of its success, the Scrap Pad project was joined by Munkedal paper mill in Sweden, as an industrial supplier of leftover paper. In an effort raise the standards of sustainability in the stationary industry, Scrap Pad IvS was established in 2018 as a Danish startup with the aim of developing and marketing Denmark's first line of 100% upcycled paper products.




What is our mission?


A notebook for everyone. Always. It started as a curiosity - what ideas might find their way into the world if instead of throwing out scrap paper we turned it into notebooks to encourage more creativity? Slowly the curiosity turned into an initiative - to create more room in for creativity by turning waste paper into space for new ideas. Now we wonder what the world might look like (or at least our home town of Aarhus) if everyone in it had a notebook in hand in the same way they have a smartphone. Perhaps it wouldn't make the slightest difference, but then again, it only takes one idea to change the world.
