A Startup Making Paper Out of Stone, Not Trees

17th June 2017

Read it.

Nobuyoshi Yamasaki’s venture TBM Co. makes paper from limestone, a rock it proclaims is “almost inexhaustible.” He says it’s the answer to concerns over deforestation and water shortages, with world demand for paper set to double by 2030.

I can see it now: Save The Rocks!

TBM’s paper is so durable and moisture-resistant it can be written on underwater, and has just signed a deal to make menus for more than 400 sushi restaurants run by Sushiro Global Holdings Ltd. across Japan.

Yet another reason not to eat sushi.
