ReBinder: Review and Giveaway




About Rebinder:

Each year, over 500 metric tons of toxic PVC ends up in landfills as the result of vinyl binders that people use. Today we should expect more. Products should be made in our country, with our workers, out of responsible materials with the intention that no landfill be required. ReBinder meets that demand.
ReBinder is the only true zero waste office supply manufacturer and the brand of choice for customers looking for sustainable, quality office supplies. Assembled by a local, AbilityOne certified disabled workforce, all ReBinder product materials are sourced from responsibly managed forests and verified FSC and SFI certified sources. With each purchase of ReBinder products, solid waste, greenhouse gas, energy, tree and water consumption are reduced. Check out our original recycled binders line.
ReBinder products have recently been nominated for the Best Office Products in North America. Learn more about our product line and how they stack up against traditional vinyl binders.
Making products responsibly means considering the source of the materials, the use of the products and where they end up at the end of their life. When used for Sales & Marketing, Events & Training or simply every day internal use, our innovative, durable and practical products raise both brand and environmental awareness while helping responsible organizations reduce solid waste and lower their carbon footprint.
Together, our customers have saved:
  • -Millions of pounds of greenhouse gases
  • -Millions of gallons of water
  • -Tens of thousands of trees
  • -Tens of billions of BTUs of energy
  • -Hundreds of tons of solid waste
As a privately owned business in Seattle, Washington, our philosophy embraces a balanced approach to providing exceptional value to our customers with products that reduce the environmental footprint of our industry and our customers.

ReBinder Sample Pack


RePocket: Our two pocket folder is ideal for presentations, media and press kits or back to school. RePockets are thicker and more rigid than traditional folders. Made from 100% Recycled 20 point FSC Certified bending chipboard.

1" ReBinder: The original 3 Ring Binder with a removable and recyclable cover. Made from rigid recycled corrugated cardboard, our 1 inch ReBinder is the binder choice for every day use around the office, as well as a by top architects, graphic designers and creative agencies. Your presentation and image will stand out from the rest when you present in a ReBinder.

RePouch -- (IN THE 1" BINDER): When your proposal requires an additional pocket, CD and or business card, RePouch fulfills all those requirements. Made from 20 point recycled bending chipboard, it holds up to continuous page turning.

ReTab -- (5 TAB Dividers): Divide your documents with our rigid brown ReTabs. ReTabs are made from rigid 18 point FSC Certified bending chipboard in a five-cut tab configuration. We also carry an eight-tab version (not included in the sample pack).

1.5" ReBinder: Rougher and tougher, our 1.5" ReBinder is made from 100 point solid FSC Certified recycled chipboard and contains our unique removable ring metal assembly. Just because it's not made of plastic, doesn't mean that it's not durable!

ReSleeve: A Recycled CD jewel case...making plastic cases a thing of the past. ReSleeves are made from 16 point rigid FSC Certified bending chipboard to protect your CD/DVD . The perfect off the shelf solution for the software company, the music label, the band or the board room. Show off the artwork on your CD through the open hole in the front...or choose the version with no hole.

RePlay: Ideal for one disc or two, RePlay comes with two open pockets that fit a single disc and a small booklet or two discs. Looks like a traditional jewel case but made from 18 point recycled FSC Certified bending chipboard. You'll want to replace all your broken plastic jewel cases with a RePlay.

ReBadge: Tradeshows, Conferences, and Seminars all produce a lot of waste. Green up your event with a ReBadge. Your attendees won't believe that their badge is made from plants and not from plastic! We hope you'll reuse your ReBadge multiple times, but if you can't -- compost it! Comes with a sample our 100% recycled perforated brown cardstock.

ReWrite mini -- LINED: We've created the perfect sized 5" x 8"recycled notebook for taking notes, sketching or doodling. Our ReWrite mini comes with 40 pages of 100% Recycled / FSC Certified paper and a recycled FSC Certified bending chipboard cover. You'll get a sample of our most popular college ruled (lined) version but our ReWrite are available in case quantities in ruled, blank or quad ruled graph paper.
ReBound: Make your presentation a game winner -- go for the ReBound. Document Finishing supplies have been limited to plastic and non recycled paper options. ReBound's clear cover looks, feels and performs like plastic but it's made from plants! ReBound can be used with any comb or coil binding system and comes with a clear PLA cover and a 20 point recycled FSC Certified chipboard back. It's the perfect solution for proposals or LEED proposals.

My Review:
Okay is it geeky to admit that I like office supplies? I admit it, I love them! I love to organize, re-organize and then do it all again. And if the products I am using are eco-friendly I am even happier. 
When I discovered a great company like ReBinder, I realized that I could indulge my obsession with office supplies and be environmentally friendly at the same. WooHoo!
Admittedly, I did not know just how sturdy these products would be and was estatic when I opened up my box and found the above products to be strong and durable. Also, as soon as I checked out all the products I received, my creative juices began to flow. You see I am a scrapbooker and I realized that I could "pretty up" the binders and the notebook. In fact, I could alter all of the products I received to review.
I have not had the opportunity to do so yet, but I am planning to use both binders, index dividers, and slouch pocket as my new Home Organization Binder. Now this is a work in progress and I will definitely post photos of the finished project in the near future.
I love that all these products are not only made of recycled materials, but can be recycled themselves. Very cool in my eyes. 
If you are looking for durable, long lasting, office supply products that can be completely customized to your liking, I highly recommend ReBinder! 
With Christmas just around the corner, all these products can be used to put together wonderful, personalized gifts  for all ages. A huge thumbs up to ReBinder.
