All Scrap Pad products contain a mix of high quality, acid-free leftover papers
Sustainable products made from 100% leftover paper
Turning waste into space for new ideas
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.

Our upcycling up-start
Scrap Pad is a circular economy start-up based in Aarhus, Denmark. It is founded by two architects from the Aarhus School of Architecture and run from the bespoke print shop Plotteriet - catering to the city's most creative companies.
Scrap Pad was originally developed as a way to reduce paper waste from printing. Scraps of high quality leftover paper were collected from various print jobs and turned into characteristic notebooks of mixed paper types.
Today, our upcycling initiative is joined by Munkedal paper mill. The mill is one of the most environmentally friendly paper productions in the world and a leader regarding low water consumption. Munkedal is redirecting leftover Munken paper from industrial production into Scrap Pad products.
As our initiative grows, the focus of Scrap Pad remains the same - to reduce paper waste by imagining more creative uses for leftover paper.
