CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Naked Binder Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

 

 

As most of you know, I am all about green com­pa­nies and eco-friendly prod­ucts, and Naked Binder is cer­tainly no excep­tion. Naked Binder is a com­pany com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing durable, very high qual­ity and use­ful prod­ucts that leave less of a foot­print on the earth.  They believe that long life, strength and beauty go hand-in-hand in the fight against an ugly, cheap, dis­pos­able soci­ety.  Naked Binder is con­stantly work­ing to improve their prod­ucts and processes, look­ing for ways to cut down on waste and pack­ag­ing.  All of Naked Binder prod­ucts are either recy­cled or recy­clable which is phenomenal!

I recently received an assort­ment of Naked Binders to review. I noticed right off the bat that these binders were much stur­dier than the vinyl binders that we nor­mally pur­chase for school use. They also sport a very pretty array of colours on the spines so you can colour coor­di­nate your projects or pick a spe­cific colour to blend into your decor! 

 

 

• 100% recy­cled board, 97% post-consumer waste
• com­pletely recy­clable
• acid neu­tral board
• no plas­tic, vinyl or toxic chemicals

 

Using eco-friendly prod­ucts help con­serve nat­ural resources, such as; wood, elec­tric­ity, water and oil. Biodegrad­able and recy­clable prod­ucts will also cut back on waste that goes to land­fills and helps pre­vent pol­lu­tion from leach­ing into the ecosys­tem. Recy­cling helps pre­serve the envi­ron­ment and sup­ports the economy.

To make the biggest impact with eco-friendly prod­ucts you should both buy eco-friendly/recycled prod­ucts and reduce, reuse and recy­cle the prod­ucts you buy.

 

 

 

 

 

Using prod­ucts made from recy­cled mate­ri­als such as what these binders are made of, reduces the impact on the envi­ron­ment in a few ways. In the exam­ple of paper, less trees are being cut down. The num­ber of chem­i­cals used in the pro­duc­tion of new paper is reduced. Land-fill sites have been spared at least the amount of paper that was recy­cled! What a bril­liant way to par­take in liv­ing an eco-friendly lifestyle!

 

About Naked Binder:

 

“Started in 2008, Naked Binder emerged hav­ing mul­ti­ple goals: sus­tain­abil­ity, great design, pre­serv­ing wilder­ness we love and giv­ing back to edu­ca­tion that helped us get here.

We designed the strongest, most sus­tain­able 3-ring binders avail­able — cut­ting waste in man­u­fac­tur­ing, pro­cess­ing and travel.  We make our binders, fold­ers and tabs 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.

We designed our 3-ring binders to look so good you won’t want to get rid of them.  We have every­thing you might need to impress a client, store your taxes or dec­o­rate your office.

Naked Binder donates to sup­port wilder­ness areas and schools around the US. Learn­ing to think and space to think in are impor­tant for a bet­ter world.
• 1” ring holds 170 sheets of paper”

    I learned that the 60 mil­lion binders that are used and dis­carded in the US each year — release diox­ins from the day they are pro­duced — From sit­ting on the shelf to sit­ting in land­fill or the Pacific Gyre, they are toxic and will not go away.
    A good rea­son to use theirs — Naked Binders are health­ier, recy­clable, last longer and look better.

    All right, I should first con­fess that I absolutely adore office prod­ucts! Any­thing that helps me stay (or get) orga­nized is awe­some, and even bet­ter if it looks and feels good, too! Naked Binder com­bines both of those with the third and awe­somest fac­tor, sus­tain­able mate­ri­als for their prod­ucts! They only use 100% post con­sumer and 100% recy­cled mate­ri­als to cre­ate their prod­ucts. LOVE that!

I do like to be green, but b/c the Reces­sion hit my house HARD I can’t com­mit extra money to it. You always show me easy/economical ways to be green.. I like this com­pany and their binders because they are sup­posed to be sturdy. I’ve went through too many that crack and need replaced. Thanks!
