Back to School Shopping - a roundup of #green tidbits from the wonderful @Healthy_Child #BackToSchool

Reuse paper. Do you have lots of blank paper left in last year’s notebooks? Don’t forget about it – use it. And when students bring home lots of paperwork with printing on just one side, use it for scrap paper. You’ll be amazed by how much paper you’ll save by drawing or printing on the back of previously used paper. Reuse folders. Recently, I visited my mom and she gave me some articles she saved in my old school folders. I remembered the folders well, even if they are at least twenty years old. I’m not sure what surprised me more – that my mom kept the folders, or that they were in amazingly great shape. Why in the world would I have needed to buy new folders the next year? It may sound simple, but if your folders are still useable, use them.
