Thanks for all the examples for helping back to school be greener. The refillable pen and pencil ideas is an avenue I’ve never considered I will defninitly include it in all my daily mortgage business practices.

I also wonder to what extent schools to do a little bit more. Why is it that the school supply lists have “scissors” every year, but they aren’t sent home at the end of the year. Where do those go?

I also add spiral notebooks to your list. At the end of every year, they send home their spirals which through grade 6 are often quite empty. Most years they only used the first 10 pages or so. We saved them, tore out used pages, and reused them for the next year.

And things that are usable but not of use to you could be donated to programs that collect school supply items for needy people who can’t afford it. Check with your local school district.

With school starting back up this month in most states, there are so many ways to be eco-friendly this time of the year. Some other points: try and save paper, use organic pencils/paper. Imagine if 1,000,000 student used less paper during this year?

Excellent information as always. Thanks!
