Eco-Friendly Back To School Hacks

by ChunkaBuns

When it comes to back to school...

The most environmental way to prepare in an Eco-Friendly way is to use what you already have.

Often, school supplies from the previous year are absorbed into the household. A lot of these will still be in tip-top condition from the precious year. Try to think of ways to recycle and upcycle first. If your list still lacks a few supplies, try to buy eco-friendly products, or Made in the USA. But before you purcahse new, try to seek out the used supplies first!

Below are some standard school supplies for suggestions on how to spruce up your old items to make them feel new, projects for The Advanced Recycler, and options for purchasing eco-friendly school supplies.
