Building a "Greener" Mousetrap
They have a better idea!
ReBinder (re-Binder, get it?) saw a need and they did something about it. Not only that, they let "green" be their guide. "Green," as in reusing material, sustainability, environmental friendliness, all the way to
healthy employment practices and keeping junk out of landfills while manufacturing three-ring binders for schools and offices as. We think this truly deserves the "green" label.

This is what they say, in their own words:
"Six years ago, we started ReBinder because we saw a need and wanted to be part of the solution. Having owned a hardware and software business for 12 years, we managed to collect a room full of plastic, three ring binders. The guilt set in when we realized that one day all these would make their way to a landfill. Consider the bigger picture. We were one business of thousands contributing to the problem. We started dissecting how these toxic binders were made and decided to create a better mouse trap. In order to effectively recycle a traditional vinyl three ring binder required a load of tools and strength just to get down to removing a couple of the pieces that could be recycled but the plastic part would be around for thousands of years. The evolution turned into a binder with a recyclable cover made of recycled cardboard and ring metals that could easily be removed. Better yet, should your ReBinder cover ever need to be replaced, the ring metals and assembly can be easily installed into a replacement cover (at a fraction of the price of buying a new binder). That little idea turned into a profitable business that makes small changes every day. Not just from an environmental standpoint but we also work with a local disabled workforce that does the assembly of our ReBinders. Our product has given people with disabilities a job and confidence that they are making a difference."
If you shop for a big company, a small one, a school or home office -- or even home school, consider going "green" with ReBinder. You'll be so satisfied!
