ÖkoFix®

ÖkoFix® is one of our inventions that we are particularly proud of. It revolutionized the table calendar industry. And yet it is so simple: Instead of the environmentally harmful PVC splint, the backboard of our table calendars is held together with a special piece of paper.

A thought experiment shows the impact of this small piece of paper on the environment, a true milestone: Since the introduction of ÖkoFix®, over 2 million meters of plastic have been saved. This corresponds to the distance Vienna-Paris-Vienna.

Impact Pure Paper

Almost every school kid in Austria writes on Impact Pure paper. And for good reasons: The paper Austria's exercise books are made from is a role-model for sustainable printing. Impact Pure Paper is made from recycled fibers without optical brighteners and chlorine bleach, produced in a climate-neutral way - and that with a whiteness of 98%. The paper also impresses with its high degree of opacity and is therefore ideally suited for two-sided printing.

By using Impact Pure paper, we have been able to reduce CO2 emissions by 7,721,415 kg over the past 10 years with a paper consumption of 8,865,000 kg. That roughly corresponds to 2,000 flights per person from Vienna to New York. Or the average CO2 consumption of 930 Austrians per year.

Apfel Leder

„Apple“-Leather

Leather made from apple residuals? Sounds like a trip to the future? It is! Thanks to an innovative technique, this bio-based leather alternative is made from apple industry food waste. It is flexible but sturdy and just perfect for the covers of our notebooks, calendars and accessories! With this pioneering technique the otherwise most dispensable part of the fruit is given a new purpose. And how does this work? Quite simple: The apple leftovers are dried and ground into powder, which forms the basis for our high-quality and eco-friendly “apple”-leather products. The future is now! The future is green! … and made of apples.

Kalendermacher Biogreen

Biogreen

Reducing the ecological footprint. Step by step. With the Biogreen series we contribute to a more sustainable production chain of our notebooks and calendars. The Biogreen project involves the use of innovative raw materials from renewable natural sources. Selected materials for our products are available from the Biogreen series. Their names are Vivella, Yuta, Acero & Paigina and they may sound exotic. But their sources are not. They are all natural!

Einbände aus „Alt-Obst“

Covers made from „fruit residuals“

What can you make from lemons, grapes, cherries, lavender and olives? Right, paper! Truly ecological paper that we use for the production of sleeves and covers of our notebooks, calendars and pocket planners. They are all made from fruits and plants that would have otherwise ended up in the trash. In addition to their ecological advantages, we have to admit: they have got the looks! Our covers made from fruit residuals are real eye candy. And even more important: this climate-neutral material makes the environmentally harmful PVC, that is still used in the production of pocket planners, 100 % obsolete.

Kalendermacher Skip-Bindung

Patented Skip-Binding®

This innovative technique used in binding table calendars ensures raw material savings of over 30%. How? Our patented Skip-Binding® uses significantly less bookbinding wire as it simply skips the middle part of each table calendar. Meaning, instead of running along the entire length of the calendar, the Wire-O binding thoroughly holds the single pages together on both ends, left & right – but skips the middle. The space gained creates an additional, large advertising space for your logo, your message or anything else that is important to you.
