The Naked Truth
Let’s face it, organization has never been your strong suit (and no, flipping through Real Simple at the doctor’s office doesn’t count). So when it’s time to actually buckle down and sort out those papers, we suggest turning to Naked Binder, an environmentally-conscious (no toxins in manufacturing, packaging, or shipping) provider of binders, paper folders, tabs, and labels. Unlike conventional vinyl binders and office supplies that are super toxic, Naked Binder goods are free of phthalates, dioxins, and vinyl off-gassing, meaning your space will be healthier, and you can breathe easier.
Whether on your way to a meeting or task-mastering at home, the Eames Wrapped 3-Ring Binder ($9) will have you organizing in chic, eco-friendly style. The binder board is made from 100% post-consumer waste and covered with Green Seal certified, 30% post-consumer waste paper in a sleek graphite gray (none of the fluffy, flowered patterns, just modern, clean lines). Concerned eco supplies won’t hold up to your hard handling? You’ll be able to flex this architectural piece of work up to 250,000 times with the weight of up to 400-500 sheets of paper. And speaking of paper, the interior of the binder is lined with acid-free (read: no yellowing), archival-grade book end paper – the same paper used by the Library of Congress to protect the contents of bound volumes! How’s that for top-notch?
After getting your documents in place, it’s time to make sure you can find them again. Naked Binder labels are surprisingly affordable (starting at just 50 cents), 100% recyclable and optimize the amount of artwork or text for aesthetically pleasing and avant-garde categorizing. Make sure to check out the helpful how-to page for templates and a link to the Naked Binder gallery of label-binder photos (yes, we admit to getting excited about the cool label ideas) for reference and inspiration.
A member of 1% for the Planet, Naked Binder also contributes to education, alongside preservation of forests and wild spaces, through donations to local schools and discount opportunities for educators… so if you didn’t have reason enough to get organized, do it for the children!
