Greening Your Back-to-School Supplies

It’s back to school time and this is a perfect opportunity to make a small change in our purchasing behaviors. By doing a little research, you can find some great school supplies that are eco-friendly and surprisingly fun.

Kids will roar for lunches packed in these adorable reusable lunch bags.

Smencils are pencils made from recycled newspaper and come in mouthwatering scents like watermelon and pineapple.

Who wouldn’t want to take notes in these oh-so-cute notebooks, made from 100% recycled paper and printed with vegetable inks.

The connected kids can charge their iPods or cell phones using this solar powered backpack from Helius.

Shop for eco-friendly supplies such as Post-Its, paper, folders, pens, and more in Staples’ Eco-Easy aisle. That was easy.
