Go Vinyl Free in 2010

Binders are used every day by businesses of all sizes. Traditional binders are made of cardboard covered in vinyl (which, may I remind you, is known to be one of the worst plastics for the environment) with a plastic overlay and metal rings permanently attached. Overall they are very inefficient, harmful to the environment and almost impossible to recycle.

With all of the environmentally friendly options available, there is no better time to go vinyl free and invest in recycled and fully recyclable binders. Making the switch from vinyl to recycled binders will immediately reduce your company’s carbon footprint and result in no added implementation cost.

When determining which route to take, always take into account these guidelines: Reduce, Reuse, Renew.  

  • Reduce
    The recycled binder you choose to use should contain no vinyl or polyvinyl chloride (clear plastic); instead it should be made from recycled chipboard.
  • Reuse
    Look for a high content of PCW (post-consumer waste) and ensure the binder is fully recyclable. Most importantly, make sure the rings are designed to be easily removed for simple recycling (many are not!)
  • Renew
    Does the company that makes your binders operate on wind power or renewable energy? Do they provide carbon neutral shipping?

Green Books N Binders does all this and more. Our patent-pending Low-Carb Binder is made from 98% recycled material and contains recycled metal rings that can easily be removed for quick disposal.

Low-Carb Binders are available in two unique designs:

1. Low-Carb Original Ships flat with recycled metal rings that can be attached upon receipt with a snap-in fastener.

2. Low-Carb Ready – Ships assembled with removable rivets that can be unscrewed for easy recycling.

There are many add-ons to choose from as well.

Recycled tabs can be ordered blank, or printed black & white or full-color. The print area ranges anywhere from tab to full-bleed.

Pockets and half folders are also available. Pockets come slotted on one side for business cards and on the other for CD/DVDs.

Recycled labels come blank with any order of Low-Carb Binders. They can be custom printed and attached prior to receipt.

The Low-Carb Binder is fully recyclable and is designed to be easily taken apart. It is the perfect solution for all of your archival and communication needs, both internally and externally. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint (and who isn’t?), go vinyl free in 2010 with the Low-Carb Binder; your customers will thank you for it!
