The Enviro-binder is another great eco-friendly back to school item. It’s an excellent alternative to vinyl binders. It’s “made of 100% post-consumer recycled chipboard and printed with low VOC-emitting, renewable vegetable-based inks.” The binder is made by Independent Printing, a Wisconsin based company. This company also offers Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) paper and uses vegetable based inks. “Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified to assure consumers that they come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.” According to the ecopreneurist.com, the binders are more durable and last longer than other green products. In addition, the binder “is available with removable screw-in ring sets to make recyclability simpler at the end of the binder’s long life” Independent Printing is also switching to green energy for their plants.
