Students use countless pages for their educational needs, whether for homework, classwork, or note-taking. However, a frequent issue that arises during the search process is a lack of organization. And once the notes have served their purpose, the papers are pushed aside and disposed, contributing to waste production. A solution to this dilemma is the open source software RedNotebook, a digital journaling tool that is available to students. RedNotebook allows for organization, enables customization, and reduced the negative impact of the paper industry on the environment.
