Back to School Week: Finding Recycled Supplies

Look for recycled supplies Summer vacation is winding down, which means it's time to prepare for new teachers, new classes, and new friends. This week, we're providing green tips for going back to school.

Tip #3: Buy Recycled 

Earlier this week, we encouraged you to reuse the supplies you already own. When it's time to buy new items, make sure those "new" paper and pens have a history. Look for paper with a high percentage of post-consumer recycled content. Bargain hunters might want to check out New Leaf's back-to-school sale. Other fun items on the market this year include Greenline's Zebra Eco Gel Pen, which is made from recycled CDs and cell phones. Fleurville's Re-Run Beta Binder is made from plastic bottles.
