Naked Binder: Smart, Colorful & Sustainable Office Supplies

The following post is brought to you by Naked Binder. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.

Can recycled office products save the world? Maybe not. But by creating products from recycled materials that are 100% recyclable and strong, they can keep 60 million pounds of toxic material from landfills each year improving air quality and preserving forests and wild spaces.

Here’s how:

Naked Binders are made in the USA from 100% recycled, 97-100% post-consumer waste board which means all Naked Binder products are 100% recyclable. They are proud to use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified board when making their 3-ring binders and folders and are happy to be members of 1% For The Planet in which they donate part of proceeds to environmental organizations striving to preserve the wild spaces we all love.

A sustainable binder should also be strong and good looking, so Naked Binder designed them to be both. The Naked Binder is crafted from one piece of board with the hinge pressed directly into it. This leaves no weak spots on the binder and makes for a super strong 3-ring binder. An independent lab flexed the Naked Binder 250,000 times without failing which means if you use this binder 20 times a day for 34 years, you still will not break the hinge. Now that’s strong.

So, whether you’re buying a few for the shelf at home or cases for the office, you can be sure that your purchase, not only stylish, will go on to help the greater good.
