Things We Like – Eco-Friendly Rocketbook

There is an easier way to jot down school events and soccer practice, parents! Stop using stickies, and try the Rocketbook - write, reuse, repeat!

There are many ways to celebrate Earth Month like planting a garden or volunteering to help clean up your community. Recycling and reusing helps the environment, too. I recently discovered the Rocketbook Everlast – a digital notebook that transforms all of your countless written notes into one digital universe.

I take a ton of notes: sports, school events, work tasks, grocery, you get it. Oh, and that birthday party we were invited to three months out. Papers sometimes end up, everywhere. The Rocketbook puts all of that in one tiny, lightweight notebook you can carry with you anywhere. Write all of your notes with its special erasable pen, and it transforms them into a beautifully scanned document. Scan your notes with your phone and digitally store to the supported service of your choice: email, Google Drive, Dropbox, Trello, Google Photos, Box and more!

I use less paper, plus I have less notes stuck to my refrigerator! I was worried my sometimes digitally-impaired self might get lost in the setup details, but it was so easy. Once you download the app on your smartphone, it guides you step-by-step on how to easily set up your cloud services. Write. Scan. Repeat.

If you’re a business, student, busy stay-at-home mom or an educator, this reusable book can help you get through the day. Save paper, save time and the planet. If you’re looking for a slick Mother’s Day gift for mom, you can add this to the gift list!

Rocketbook recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, too, for it’s new Rocketboard. A step up from not only recording notes in the nifty notebook, it’s meant to capture, organize and broadcast important notes or diagrams, on any whiteboard or wall surface in real-time. All you need are four restickable “beacons” for any sized surface and the Rocketbook app. Price $12. For more details on supporting the launch, head to

You can order your Rocketbook on; or at Now, excuse me while I go jot down a reminder for baseball practice this week.
