Guided Office Products

Responsible, American Made Products - GuidedOur Daily Green recently was offered an opportunity to review sustainable office and school supplies from ReBinder. ReBinder is a Seattle, Washington based company leading the way as as a zero waste office supply manufacturer of quality paper supplies. Their products are assembled by AbilityOne, a local certified disabled workforce and their product materials are responsibly sourced.

The company is doing wonderful things, but the question remains, how is the quality of their products?

We opened our sample shipment from ReBinder and immediately were impressed to see no superfluous packaging or waste. We once received a small sea sponge for painting from a "green" type of company and the sponge was wrapped in plastic bubble wrap, inside a box wrapped in more bubble wrap and shipped in another box. To Our Daily Green, how something is shipped is an indicator of how sincere and committed a company is to true green living. ReBinder measures up.

So do their products. Included in our package were cd sleeves to replace the broken plastic ones for several of our CDs, recycled notebooks with tab dividers,  a report presentation folder with a plant based clear plastic-like sheet that is certified compostable, as well as name badges for lanyards. The mini Daily Greens already have pressed the binders and notebooks into service and really love that they can be customized. The binders are durable recycled cardboard and chipboard and look like they will take the abuse of teenagers' lockers and backpacks quite well.

ReBinder prices are competitive with other similar non sustainable products, which is a fabulous way to encourage green consumer spending.

Our Daily Green received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, we only recommend products or services we use personally and believe will be good for our readers.
