Although I could have just picked up regular pencils from the stores. I thought this would be a good opportunity to show DD that we could use eco-friendly products even when it comes to things she needs for school. Green Backpack is a company that carries school supplies that are made from recycled or sustainable materials. The company was nice enough to sent DD 1 package of #2 pencils, 1 package of color pencils, 1 ruler and an eraser to get her ready for school.
The ruler is made from 40% recycled plastic. The eraser is made from 50% post consumer waste (old tires, shoe soles and factory scraps). And, the pencils are made from 100% recycled paper. I must say that while I was sharping pencils for her, I did notice that they were much easier to sharpen than the store bought ones DD had.
DD loves her eco-friendly school supplies. She uses them daily when she does her homework. If you want to be eco-smart too, please visit Green Backpack to pick up some school supplies.
Many thanks to Green Backpack. The company has generously offered 1 box of pencils (winner's choice of #2 pencils or color pencils) and an eraser as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers. This giveaway ends on Sep 28th, 2011.
