The plastic and vinyl commonly used in school binders are often not recyclable, but did you also know that they release dioxins during production? Thankfully there are Naked Binders, which are free of plastics, vinyl or toxins, are made from 100% post consumer waste, and are 100% recyclable [13]. Made in the USA, the Naked collection has everything students need to keep organized and green from the start of the school year to the finish!
