We, team MOYU, are a scale-up company committed to combating single use paper and paper waste. We also want to protect and restore forests, biodiversity and ecosystems.
We do this by selling stationery made of erasable and rewritable stone paper. This paper is free from trees, water and nasty chemicals. Better for you and for nature! You can read more about stone paper here.
For every MOYU notebook sold, we plant a tree in collaboration with Trees For Kenya! 🌳
MOYU was founded by Roel Schatorjé. He wanted to do something about the massive paper waste he witnessed every day when he still worked in the financial sector.
When Roel spent a year living in Kenya, he was inspired by all the stories and saw with his own eyes how degraded the area was. He was eager to contribute and decided to collaborate with Trees For Kenya.
Long story short, once he was back in The Netherlands, he set up MOYU and the rest is history.
If we could, we would save all the forests of the world. The more ambitious the better.
Our mission is to stop single use paper and paper waste. In addition, we protect and plant as many trees as possible, so that the local and global ecosystems can be kept protected and thrive like they should.
More information can be found on our Mission page.
We'd love to introduce ourselves on our Team page!
MOYU is Chinese for “magical place”. By this we mean our planet Earth and your MOYU notebook. The notebook too is a magical place in which you can write down all your thoughts, plans and dreams.
Investing in quality is expensive. But investing in the short term is expensive.
Due to the high quality of stone paper, the writing and erasing experience is not only better, the production is also more durable and the product lasts many years longer. We even see a 75% cost saving after using the notebooks for several years, because 1 MOYU notebook replaces an average of 15 pulp paper notebooks.

We are ambitious, mission-driven and we are growing fast. Sometimes even a bit too fast.
Our priority is therefore to guarantee the quality of our current collection & service.
Recently, we finally launched our A4 collection and we are currently working hard on setting up a modular collection.
Apart from production-oriented steps, we also increasingly collaborate with companies, organizations and schools. After all, together we can make a bigger impact!

How does it work
Very simple. Write, erase, scan and repeat!
Step 1: Write
Write or draw on the stone paper with our MOYU pen. After 8-12 seconds, the ink has dried, so you no longer have to worry that it will smudge.
Step 2: Erase
If you want to erase the text, it is best to do this with a damp cloth. This cloth is automatically included with your order. Let the page dry for the best effect (or dry it yourself with a dry cloth).
Step 3: Scan
If you don't want to lose your notes, we recommend scanning them. This is possible with various free apps. Check out our top 4 Best Free Scan Apps here!
Step 4: Repeat
Repeat till you drop! 😄
This differs per MOYU notebook. You'll find the exact lay-out in the product description under each product in the shop.
Our special MOYU pens – filled with the original Frixion ink – are necessary to erase the text flawlessly. The pens are refillable with new refills. If the pen refill is used up, pens or refills can be ordered cheaply. We also offer various colors, such as blue and red. We can make favorable arrangements for regularly recurring (business) orders for pens or refills.
The ink has a drying time of 8-12 seconds. After 8-12 seconds you can move your finger over the text without smudging. At any time after these 8-12 seconds (even after 3, 6 or 12 months) you can remove everything with a damp cloth without leaving stains or other traces. 😊
With a damp cloth!
Not soaking wet. Although that’s possible too. We prefer to dip our cloth in some water and then wipe the page clean again. Or we use the MOYU.
Please wait a moment to rewrite the page until the page is dry. And .. you're good to go!

Stone paper has a cradle to cradle certificate and is a circular product. Therefore, never throw away your notebook, but return it to us. Learn all about this circular chain on our stone paper page.
Stone paper is a sustainable alternative to normal "pulp" paper.
It is composed of 80% crushed stone (calcium carbonate) and 20% HDPE plastic. This plastic serves as a binding agent and is easily biodegradable. The stone paper feels firmer and slightly smoother than normal paper, which creates a super smooth writing experience. It is also tear and water resistant. With a damp cloth you can wipe clean every page in an instant. Because the paper is sturdy, you can rewrite every page up to 500 times.
You can read more information about stone paper on our Stone paper page.
Stone paper is most likely new to you. You may be wondering: what's the use of writing on stone paper at all?
The advantages of erasable stone paper:
✓ The production process is much more economical and sustainable compared to pulp paper
✓ You save trees, water, energy and CO2 emissions
✓ Stone paper is tear-resistant and water-resistant
✓ Erasing your notes gives a clear overview of your work, plus a wonderfully tidy-and-cleaned-up feeling
✓ Stone paper is Cradle-to-Cradle recyclable: no new materials are needed
The more people switch to stone paper, the bigger and stronger the fight against paper waste and deforestation becomes.
When will you switch?
Read more about stone paper on our Stone Paper page.
Producing, transporting and recycling pulp paper is a very intensive process. It takes a lot of water, CO2, energy and trees. In addition, huge numbers of trees are being felled for the paper industry, leading to degraded and infertile soils, devastated habitats for humans and animals, warming up of the area, desertification, climate change and a decline in biodiversity.
Stone paper is currently the most sustainable solution for regular pulp paper. No trees, water or chemicals are used and because the paper is rewritable, it will last for years.
Compare the production of a ton of stone paper with the production of a ton of regular pulp paper:
• 18 trees saved → oxygen for 40 people for a whole year
• 949 kg less CO2 emissions → 4,250 km by car, e.g. from Amsterdam to Jerusalem
• 2,770 liters of water saved → more than 4 years of drinking water for 1 person
• 17.1 Gigajoules less energy consumed → 1.5 years of energy for an entire household
• 0 harmful chemicals needed → normally used to kill microbes and whiten paper
Due to the properties of the stone paper in combination with our special pen, each page is erasable up to 500 times.* It is therefore not only a more sustainable, but also cheaper alternative, because you only need one notebook instead of several.
* Ink from regular pens is not erasable.
