Its that time of year when all the students are out trying to find the school supplies they need, the strongest back packs, and a new wardrobe so they can look their best when they show up to school that first day. Well its not hard to be green when your back to school shopping. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while making your way through the stores.
First off, check through what you already have, if you have left over paper, pencils or any other supplies – don’t buy any more, use what you have.
Don’t buy just because its a good sale, if you don’t need it then its just a waste of money and resources.
For the supplies you do need to buy try to stick to recycled, eco-friendly school supplies.
The best thing to do is see if your student can get by with the back pack they have from last year. Reusing is the greenest, most eco-friendly thing you can do for the environment.
For some of your have-to-buy-new needs, try and find items that are Eco-friendly either by the material they are made from (such as hemp or bamboo) or how there company take steps to make the environment better.
