The Write Stuff

Sunflowers Decomposition books ($6-$15) and pencils ($14 for pack of 12), Decomposition by Michael Roger

As a habitual notetaker, I am constantly replenishing my stock of pencils and notebooks. And thanks to Decomposition by Michael Roger, I can accumulate stacks on stacks without fretting about the carbon footprint. These made-in-the-USA books are created from 100-percent post-consumer recycled paper, and the pencils come from sustainably harvested incense cedar. —Mary Murray, executive editor 

Laptop Love

Captain Sleeve Suite portable laptop case and stand ($265), Oleada

Working remotely has a whole new look thanks to the innovative Captain Sleeve Suite by Oleada. More than just a sleek way to protect your computer on the go, its foldable design lets you transform the case into an ergonomic laptop stand. The removable clutch is a perfect place to stash your power cord and mouse. Better still: It’s crafted from recycled plastic that feels and wears like leather. —Kristen Desmond LeFevre, editor in chief

It’s a Date

Even with all of today’s modern tech tools, I still prefer to organize my schedule using a classic agenda. Smythson’s showstopping version from the Mara collection in jade crocodile-embossed calf leather with its week-to-view layout caught my eye as a must-have for memorializing everything from meetings to milestones. —Allison Wolfe Reckson, contributing editor
