Back to School in 2013 with green school supplies

What your school stationery and supplies are made of matters. You might only use school stationery for a year or so, but some of the materials it can be made from last a lot longer than that - usually in landfill!

  • Materials such as PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) in folders, ring binders, erasers and pencil cases pose great environmental and health hazards from manufacture to disposal. Why take the risk - there are better alternatives: recycled paper folders and binders, organic cotton pencil cases, PVC-free Erasers and more.
  • Those very cheap exercise books you might have seen: are they made from rainforest-sourced timber pulp from Indonesia? If so they are putting ever more pressure on threatened native rainforests, on animal habitat and on the native communities of this region. Why be part of the problem - it's easy to be part of a better way forward. Use recycled exercise books.
  • Got a pencil case full of cheap plastic pens? Small things can have big impacts. Every year over 10 billion plastic pens worldwide are thrown out and end up in landfill.  Why add to the waste - use recycled paper pens, biodegradable cornstarch pens and other alternatives instead.
