This binder is literally cardboard - equally as sturdy as the box in which it was shipped. The metal three- ring part is sturdy. I completely understand the recycle-ability of this binder, but it's also what makes it rather fragile. This is not a binder that would work for daily office use (and for sure not for school kids). It would bend easily and melt in the rain. If you simply need paper/file storage and don't handle the binders roughly, they would work well.
HOWEVER, while it may sound like I don't like the binder -- you are wrong. I really like them! These binders could be the perfect springboard for creativity. I could see them used as journals or scrapbooks -- the exteriors could be easily customized, collaged, decorated. These would be perfect for 3-d scrapbooking. Unexpectedly fun!

Spine is 11.625" High by 2.625" Wide.ReBinder provides an ecological solution for office products that no other can claim. Our corrugated cardboard binders are 70% Recycled (at least 40% Post Consumer Recycled) and are the best alternative to toxic vinyl binders. ReBinder recycled binders are very durable and more resistant to spine-tearing than the traditional vinyl binders. ReBinder is truly recyclable and reusable because it is a corrugated cardboard binder. Vinyl binders are neither recyclable nor reusable. Unlike other binders that use rivets to attach their ring metals, ReBinder's ring metals are affixed using two screws and t-nuts that can be easily unassembled and "reused" without any waste. We believe it's unlikely you'll ever need to replace your ReBinder cover, but if you do, it can be recycled back into the system and kept out of the landfill. Replacement covers are available for purchase for less than purchasing a new binder. Available in 1", 2" and 3" D sizes.Why ReBinder? It's The Original - A Brand You Can TRUST! Because those OTHER Binders end up in a landfill ...
