Our vision

To create products which enhance your creativity and curiosity, whatever the weather.

Taking adventure notes on a phone is impersonal, difficult in the cold and not much fun to show your friends. When our Founder, Russ Hepton, came home early from the Pacific Crest Trail he got to work creating the notebook he’d always wanted.

How we got here

After months of design, testing and development our first waterproof memo book was launched in September 2020. With a successful first year we’ve grown the business and our product range to suit all kinds of outdoor applications with many more to come.

Materials

Our products are made using a combination of recyclable materials and ultra high-quality, eco-friendly printing techniques.

All Thrunotes waterproof notebooks and memo books are made using Yupo waterproof paper which is damn near indestructable, while also being recyclable and a dream to write on.

Environment

At Thrunotes, we’re committed to reducing our impact on the wilderness and are proud to say we’ve made every effort to design an environmentally responsible waterproof notebook from day one.

We do this by seriously obsessing over our environmental principles below:

Thrunotes recyclable materials stacked
We only use recyclable materials

We hope you never want to part ways with your Thrunotes, but if you do you’ll be glad to know that all our waterproof notebooks are made using fully recyclable ISO 14.001-certified papers.

We only partner with environmentally responsible companies

Our printers and suppliers recycle rather than create extra waste and use eco-friendly printing techniques and processes while never compromising on quality.

We never use plastic packaging

We want to avoid single-use plastic at all costs. That’s why our packaging is always made from FSC-certified materials and recyclable card, tissue, stickers and kraft paper.
