ReBinder Review

ReBinder, makers of eco-friendly office products...because you know the environment needs saving and you can do your bit. Actually you can do your bit by entering our giveaway to win one of three back to school kits! Go on, do it now and then come back here.

ReBinder were also nice enough to provide another back to school kit for us to review. Because, you's not enough to be environmentally-friendly. It's gotta work too, and they're confident in their products.

So we engaged our fearless reviewer, Katie, to test drive the back to school kit and tell us what she thought...

I liked the idea of this back to school kit being eco-friendly, because I'm all about recycling and saving Our Planet Earth. My son Aiden really liked this set also, and he can't wait to start using it at school. I'm not quite sure he understands yet that kindergarten doesn't require the amount of school supplies that this kit offers, but least he's enthusiastic about it!

He thought it was "cool" when I told him it was made out of recycled paper, and then we had to have a half hour conversation about how "old paper gets made into new paper"...nice.

It's not the prettiest looking school supply kit (in terms of colors), but the fact that it is eco-friendly should more than make up for it. My favorite are the pens.

I LOVE the pens, and I have claimed them for MY USE ONLY! These ReMark pens are truly an eco-friendly pen. They contain no petroleum plastic, and they look and feel like plastic but are made from plant resins from sustainably harvested wood and organic cotton. How awesome is that? No, really...that's some pretty fascinating stuff.
