You have enough to think about in the first weeks of school as kids get used to their new fall schedules without having to worry about the environmental impact of all those plastic school items. We went ahead and did the research for you, so you can invest in eco-friendly school supplies you'll feel good about now and throughout the entire school year.
- Lunchskins reusable fabric bags are dishwasher safe and their recycled and resealable paper sandwich bags just destroyed the brown bag lunch game.
- Bentgo compartmentalized lunch boxes, cups and bowls are BPA, PVC, and lead free.
- To-Go Ware Kids Bamboo Utensil Set is made for mini hands and come in a handy case.
- Bobble Water Bottles have a built in filtration system to remove chlorine and other contaminants from tap water. Made from recycled PET.
- Fluf Organic Cotton Lunch Bags are machine washable and have a wipeable, water-resistant liner.
- Plum Organics Jammy Sammy for a quick, “we’re going to be late” snack. No added trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, preservatives, or crust! BPA free packaging and a recyclable box.
Earth Friendly School Supplies
- Action Method by Behance has a line of journals, notebooks and calendars with color-coded grids to keep students (and professionals) organized. Made from 30% post consumer recycled paper.
