Simplifying at Blue Sky

At Blue Sky, we are firm advocates of sustainable forest management practices and prioritize collaboration with conscientious partners throughout our product line production process. We are dedicated to simplifying sustainability and making significant strides towards a greener future.



We believe it’s important to engage with thoughtful partners when producing our products. We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Their projects span the globe and are done in partnership with local communities and knowledgeable experts to create an impact for nature, people, and wildlife. Reforestation helps to rebuild forests after fires and floods, provide jobs for social impact, and restore biodiversity.

Certified Paper?

This ensures our paper comes from responsibly managed forests that protect biodiversity, worker & community rights.

Why Kraft Packaging?

Our kraft paper is uncoated (this makes it easier to recycle) and made with less processing than standard packaging.

Recycling icon

Why No Stickers?

Due to the use of adhesive, most stickers are not reusable or recyclable and will end up in a landfill. We like to keep our products recyclable!

Drop of ink icon

Why Soy-Based Ink?

Soy-based ink is renewable, made from plants and emits less Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), compared to traditional ink.

No-Plastic icon

Why Plastic-Free Pages, Tabs & Packaging?

We avoid plastic wherever possible to decrease pollution and keep our products recyclable.

Blue Sky will divert 90% of waste from landfills by 2025

We have taken a big step on our sustainability journey by estimating our Scope 1, 2 & 3 greenhouse gas emissions as well as setting a reduction target percentage of 29.4% for our Scope1 & 2 GHG emissions by 2027 in accordance with the Science-Based Targets Initiative. As we refine and improve the quality of our data collection, we anticipate there to be an increase in our carbon footprint, but will stay on target to achieve our reduction target through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).
