Eco-Friendly School Supplies for Back to School

Welcome Back to School! Even with all the variations of where students are going to class, one thing remains true, everyone needs school supplies that are earth-friendly. Here’s our curated list of the most common school supply needs with an eye towards how well they help the earth and students. Setting yourself up for a successful school year is easier when you know where to start. 

Highlighter Pencils. Taking good notes and making sure students have a way to highlight important information is critical to academic success. Switching out the typical plastic highlighter pens for these neon, high glow pencils helps everyone! 

Plastic Free Binder. Let students embrace their creative side as they embellish a binder with a neutral cover. Plus, everyone will have the satisfaction of completing a DIY project when you construct the binder yourself!

Loose Leaf  The best paper to put in your binder is one that uses recycled paper waste, or what’s known as post-consumer waste. This powerhouse includes 30% recycled paper when making loose-leaf paper, in addition, it’s printed with soy-based ink. Looking for a Recycled Journal? 

Plant Based Glue Sticks. Made from a non-toxic plant formula these glue sticks make sure all your school, DIY, and craft projects hold up. What makes this a better choice is how the company uses both a recycled tube and packaging when making this product. 

Back Pack Now that you have all your supplies, you need a backpack to keep track of everything! Made with a fabric that utilizes recycled water bottles, not only is it chlorine-free and water-resistant, it also has pockets galore!

Now that you have some ideas, grab your recycled journal, and start creating your school supply lists!  And when schools in session, be sure to read our post on How to Use a Dot Grid Journal to Track School Assignments!
