Shopping for school supplies, a favorite, time-honored ritual that should not be reserved exclusively for those actually returning to school!
This year I'm wanting these eco-friendly choices:
EarthWise Recycled Twin Pocket Portfolios, from The Nerds:
Agenda/Planner and notebooks of 100 percent post-consumer waste and vegetable-based dyes, by EcoJet, at Delight:
Fun and friendly jungle print pencils made of recycled newspapers, by O'bon, and non-toxic, water-based highlighters @ Green Earth Office Supply:
Composition book, from Green Line Paper:
Recycled paper PostIt Notes and BeGreen Recycled Liquid Ink Rollerball Pen, @ Office Depot:
Paper clips made of recycled steel, @Staples:
To haul it all around, there's this PVC free Targus EcoSmart bag, constructed from 100% recycled polyester, recyclable plastic, and nickel-free metal finishings, @ Targus.com.
And finally, an adorable, resuable, waste-free lunch set from One Small Step @ reusablelunchware.com (because, you know - shopping makes you hungry):
Live and learn!
