Wow, we are at that time again… buying for back-to-school. You may be asking yourself “Well, I need to get school supplies for myself and/or for my children but where can I get quality products which are also eco-friendly?” I have just found the place. I was fortunate enough to receive some products from Naked Binder and I was impressed with their company and their products.
Naked Binder started in 2008 and has emerged having multiple goals: sustainability, great design, preserving wilderness and giving back to education. They offer binders, folders, tabs, labels and other products to help you to bring Green to your school, home or office.
I received from Naked Binder the products in the above image. I was immediately drawn to the binders because they are obviously so durable. In no time I began using the 3-ring cobalt blue binder as a scrapbook for my new passion, running. I’m now keeping track of all of races I run in this sleek and strong binder. This binder is perfect for any project. I will soon have projects for the other binders. I use the folders to be better organized. I like the fact the folders are plain and aren’t dyed with colors so I can design and label the folders anyway I choose.
I also like the fact all of their binders, folders and tabs are made in Des Moines, IA in the US of A out of FSC certified, 100% post-consumer waste binders board, 100% cotton cloth, a few FSC certified papers and metal rings. No plastics, vinyls or toxins.
From the Naked Binder website:
Steps Naked Binder takes to insure sustainability
Recycled: We use only board that is 100% post consumer waste and 100% recycled.
FSC Certified: Nearly all of our materials are FSC certified.
Stronger: Our binders have been tested to 250,000 flexes without fail, making them perhaps the strongest 3-ring binder in the world.
No Plastics: Naked Binder does not use plastics, vinyl or other toxins in manufacturing or shipping so everything is easily returned to the recycling stream. This takes pressure off of your waste management system, landfills and reduces the need for new production of virgin resources.
Recyclable: Our binders are 100% recyclable.
Innovating: We constantly test new materials to craft the most environmentally safe products that last longer, work better and look great.
Local: All of our products are made in the USA, minimizing world wide travel to get to you. Our manufacturing plant is in Des Moines IA.
Community: Naked Binder works and donates to two causes, education and wilderness preservation. Over the years, we have donated thousands of binders to kids who need them across the country. We have discounts for teachers and schools and have worked with organizations who are working to increase access to educational resources. As a member of 1% for the Planet, Naked Binder also works with and donates to organizations striving to preserve wilderness and open spaces.
Kudos to Naked Binder for the products they create and for their community involvement. I would highly recommend using Naked Binder when buying for back-to-school. Another green company that you should check out.
