Seattle-based Sustainable Group markets an impressive line of 100% recyclable binders and folders made with post-consumer recycled product.

You could also use Naked Binders, which use no virgin fiber. They are 100% recycled material from the state of Connecticut. Also, being constructed from a 110pt board, they are considerably sturdier than other recycled or green binders. http://www.nakedbinder.com
