CreateMyCookbook's Rite in the Rain® paper option is 32lb in weight and has a gorgeous matte finish. I'll get a little nerdy here and also mention that it also meets the archival criteria listed out in the Permanence of Paper for Publications and Documents in Libraries and Archives standard. In non-nerdy terms, this means that Rite in the Rain® can last several hundred years with normal use, will survive harsh elements, and even your attic's uncontrollable conditions.
If you're incredibly messy in the kitchen, this is for you!. It truly does not matter what you're doing: baking, cooking, mixing drinks. It will easily wipe clean (see the photos below).
Rite in the Rain® paper is as recyclable as standard office paper, and the process used to create it was intentionally designed to have ultra-low impact on the environment. The manufacturer details the processes on the FAQ page if you're interested in reading more. Essentially, every aspect of production and how it can impact our environment has been considered. It's so nice to rest easy knowing that you can reap the benefits of spill-proof paper while knowing it isn't wreaking havoc on the environment.
