    Exactly what I was looking for

    I was so happy to find this company! I wanted a simple binder that was made from environmentally friendly materials, and that's exactly what I received. I love the thought behind having people construct it themselves - it's empowering and educational, even though it was so simple and easy. Thank you for what you are doing, and I will be back the next time I need a well crafted and thoughtfully sourced product.

    Best binder ever.

    This is how all binders should be made. I love that the cover can be recycled and the hardware reused. Exactly what I wanted, thanks!

    Great products and lightning fast service

    My office uses the zero-waste binders and we love them! In addition to being eco-friendly, I think they are more durable than the plastic ones, which tear easily along the folds. I placed an order at around 4:30 in the afternoon and it was in my mailbox the next day! I was blown away at how quickly the order was processed, even considering we're in the same part of the country.

    Beautifully packaged and exactly as ordered

    I can’t wait to our the binder together and share it with our online followers! Thank you for a wonderful replacement for the old binders. I can’t wait to fill up the binder with project ideas!

    Wise Up and go Zero-Waste

    I love Wisdom Supply. The school supplies our district recommends are pretty much all plastic garbage and they are more expensive! Wisdom Supply has superior products, excellent prices, and they offer great refills to avoid redundant purchasing. Plus, the binder covers are perfect for sketching while you're bored out of your mind at a pep rally. My kids would mutiny if I tried to get them to use anything else.

    Binder Assembly How-To Video:

    We knew if our binders were delivered pre-assembled, the majority would be thrown “away” when they were worn out.
    It’s habit.
    Use it up, toss it out, get a new one.
    It’s the plastic-world way.

    You know the expression:
    Give a person a binder, organize them for a day. Teach a person to binder, shift their thinking about our throwaway society.

    1. Finding "Missing" Screws How-To Video:


    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.
