5 more ways to green your school
Walk, ride, carpool or take public transportation to school each day. Organize a “Walk to School” event for the next Walk To School Day on Oct. 8. Check out Walk To School for ideas.
Need to buy a few new supplies for school? Look for stuff that’s made from recycled and non-toxic materials. Choose art supplies that are water or vegetable based. Invest in reusable products such as rechargeable batteries and refillable pens, pencils and scotch tape. Seek out products that use the least amount of packaging. Better yet, save money and packaging by buying in bulk (go in with a friend if you won’t use it all).
At the end of the school year, sell or donate your extra school supplies, equipment and books to reduce the clutter in your home and maybe add a little green to your wallet. Sell textbooks through Craigslist or Ebay, or have a yard sale.
