This planner is expensive.
I know, I know, the planner isn’t cheap.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For what is essentially a stack of papers with some stuff on them, it's a bit nuts.
While the price is in fact comparable to some big name brands with their own planners...the price seems like a lot, especially when i'm not Tiffany's or CDG.
We have all become accustomed to things costing nothing, in fact, I’m pretty sure you can buy a planner at the dollar store. The reality is that creating something isn’t cheap, and products made to fit a certain price point come at a cost.
I could have paid some random company to make them in bulk for $3 a piece, I could make the most of their massive temperature controlled storage warehouse and print run factories that produce tonnes of CO2 every day. I could use plastic wrap and PVC covers. I could have used some giant shipping company or airline to send them all around the world in the hundreds or thousands, half of which might never be sold. I could choose not to worry about the climate, or the trees, or the people who make these products. And I could have made them cheaper to purchase and still increased my profit margin tenfold. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But that’s not how I roll. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Instead, I choose to pay more, to make less and to plant trees. I choose to work with a company that runs on renewable energy, who source their paper ethically. They compost, recycle, and pay their workers well. They are ethical and constantly try to do better. I choose to only print when a book is ordered. I choose to work with people who avoid extra waste and reduce emissions. Is it perfect? Nope. Am I constantly trying to find ways to do better? Of course. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyone can take the easy road. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But that’s not how we change the world.
