As summer draws to a close and the new school year begins, choosing environmentally-conscious school supplies is one easy step to take toward sustainable living and is a great way for both parents and students do their part in taking care of our planet.
Below are just a few of the many "easy-to-incorporate" sustainable living tips and tricks for your back-to-school needs ECOMAIDS:
- Instead of buying new backpacks and lunch boxes with this season's most popular characters, up-cycle
old knapsacks and lunch packs by decorating them stickers featuring the new "it" characters or by adding new design elements. If you must buy new supplies, choose those made from recycled products.
- Don't buy "in excess" or "in bulk" unless you need to. Check what you already have before buying new items and don't stray from or add to the shopping list your child was given.
- Look for Sustainable Pens and Pencils. Today there are many options of refillable, recycled and biodegradable pens and pencils. Often times, you can find pens and pens that fit all three criteria -refillable, recycled and biodegradable.
- Participate in a clothing swap with friends and donate any unusable leftovers. Avoid the back-to-school rush at the mall this year by participating in local clothing swaps, consignment sales or by donating gently used (or even new) clothes that your child has grown out of.
- Disinfect backpacks, lunch boxes and other supplies using green products. Gentle household cleaning products such as hydrogen peroxide and vinegar will safely sanitize backpacks, lunch boxes and school supplies without exposing your home and family to toxic chemicals and irritants.
