    If Wisdom Binders were pre-assembled, the removable, replaceable, recyclable cover feature would be overlooked, and the binders would continue to be landfilled once they were worn out and mangled.

    The five minutes it takes to assemble the binder is intended to help unlearn binder disposability, and imprint the new option to remove, recycle, and replace the cover.

    Assembly requires 5 minutes and a Phillips head screwdriver.

    We’ve had 3 Binder Kit recipients report that the screws + posts were missing.

    We figured out that they weren’t actually missing, just really well hidden.

    For future orders we’re writing a note on the bags, but here’s a semi-unboxing “find the screws” tutorial:


    Wisdom Supply Co. was founded by two plastic pollution activists stunned into action by the staggering waste created every year from the plastic, vinyl, and spiral-bound school supplies the students were instructed to purchase.
    The best time to help future adults unlearn wasteful habits was decades and billions of tons ago. The next best time is now.
    Pile of birhgtly colored, used, discarded plastic school supplies, binders, notebooks, folders, stacked on top of one another with plastic pens, pencils, tape dispensers, and packaging scattered around.
