Introducing Myndflo: the environmentally friendly alternative to whiteboards, flip charts & Post-it notes that saves you time and money
Facilitating workshops is a costly endeavour.
There are financial costs: Flip charts and Post-it notes aren’t cheap. Plus tack or tape left behind runs the risk of a high repair bill from the venue for ruining their walls.
There are environmental costs: Once you use flip chart paper its life is over. And did you know Post-it notes can’t be recycled because of the adhesive?
There are costs to your time: How often in a multi-day event have you come back into the room to find all your work from the previous day lying on the floor?
Fortunately there’s a new way to fix all these problems using electrostatic-charged, recyclable film from Myndflo.
The Short Story
Myndflo products are made from electrostatic-charged, recyclable film. They stick to any smooth surface with no risk of residue or damaging surfaces, and stay in place far longer than traditional sticky notes.
They’re perfect for workshops and meetings, around the offices or at off-site locations.
Plus they’re an alternative to whiteboards: you can write on them, clean them, reuse them and move them to different walls or locations simply by peeling them off.

How a global consultancy saves money using Myndflo instead of traditional workshop materials
A division of one of the largest global consultancies in the world approached Myndflo asking for a custom kit they could use for a series of training events.
They were looking for a workshop service that offered convenient re-ordering, would ship to the venue, and considered the environmental implications of running workshops. Myndflo met those requirements.
The company also recognised by using a product that could be re-used there were cost savings, as well as environmental benefits.
When management looked closely at the cost of materials and hire, they calculated they were spending more than £1,500 on the cost of hiring the flip charts alone.
For a two or three day event, run ten times a year, that individual cost soon mounts up.
Myndflo proposed a pre-built kit including reusable whiteboard / flip chart sheets, an assortment of recyclable notes, and a selection of markers for writing, drawing, presenting.
The total cost of the kit was around £280, and was designed for groups of 30 people.
The kit could be used for the duration of the learning event, as well as be re-used for future events.
They shaved 50% off their costs in the first event alone. As they continue to reuse the kits in future events real savings increase.
Furthermore, the kits were designed in such a way that re-ordering top-ups was a simple process.
The company recognised the difference Myndflo products could bring to the workshop experience. Including the element of fun. They found people love sliding the notes around, and are more engaged as a result.
The benefits of Myndflo’s solution were:
- Time saving: No more cutting bits of tape or using tack to stick flip charts on walls. And no more wasting time struggling to get tack or tape off the wall at the end of the workshop.
- Reusable saving money: The sheets can be reused. Wipe the ink off when you’ve finished using that sheet, and reuse it for the next workshop.
- Environment: The sheets and notes are recyclable. That’s great for the environment, and means that the usual workshop wastage is significantly reduced.
- No venue wall damage: The client normally uses external venues for these events. With Myndflo products there's no need for tape or tack to stick flip chart output on the walls. Therefore no risk of damage and the associated costs that come with repair.
“Myndflo products are sustainable and can be reused, and because each kit comes in a box, they can be easily transported to the next workshop venue. A huge time, money and environment saver!”
"REALLY EASY TO USE PLUS THEY'RE 100% RECYCLABLE!"
Guy Stephens, Full Time Facilitator
Full disclosure: The white side of the notes are erasable and therefore reusable after cleaning with a damp cloth but not the colored side
