Back to school season is finally on! School is a great time to get your children involved in the green movement. They have a chance to be an example to other students and faculty. Environmentally friendly products are no longer drab and boring. You can purchase excellent quality items that look just as cool as the rest of the back to school items sold at every store this time of year. You and your child have a chance to positively impact the impressionable individuals your children interact with everyday!
Here are some inexpensive eco-supplies I found on my Back to School hunt:
1. The EcoStapler- There is no need to remove metal staples before shredding or recycling your documents. The eco-friendly, staple-free stapler can fasten up to 5 sheets of conventional paper together and is incredibly easy to use. It’s a great & safe for children.
2. Banana Paper Recycled Binder Filler – This 100-sheet pack of sustainable, Binder Filler Banana Paper is bleach-free, acid-free, and made from 80% post-consumer waste paper and 20% banana leaf fibers. The paper is 3-hole punched, measures 10.5″ x 8″ and is available in either College Ruled or Wide Ruled sheets.
3. Terracycle Frito-Lay Wrapper Binder- This durable Frito-Lay binder by TerraCycle keep papers in place with a 3-ring binder and easily wipes clean with the swipe of a damp sponge. The binder is made out of used chip bags that could not be recycled but are remade into a functional and creative product. The used chip bags are washed and sanitized before the product is sewn to ensure the cleanliness of this product.
4. Green Apple Eco-Friendly Highlighter Pencils – These biodegradable highlighter pencils are jumbo-sized and feature a hexagonal shape and natural wood finish. They come in a 4 pack of assorted colors and will not smear ink or bleed through textbooks or dictionaries.
5. TreeSmart Biodegradable Ruler & Recycled Pencil Set- The biodegradable green plastic ruler (12 inches) holds two TreeSmart Recycled Newspaper Pencils along with an eraser & pencil sharper (all included).
6. TreeSmart Recycled Pens- Made from a combination of biodegradable plastic, bamboo, and recycled paper, the TreeSmart Pen is writing its way to a greener future for everyone.
