I can't believe it's that time of year again! I remember as a child loving it... getting to pick out my school supplies, carefully loading them into my backpack, and then trying to get some sleep before the big day! There was nothing quite like the smell of new pencils and notebooks, and the promise of meeting friends again. So many great memories.
One thing that I really hadn't even thought about was how to make sure that the school supplies we buy are green. Rowan isn't in school yet, but he will be next year, and I know I will want to make sure that the supplies we buy are not making a huge impact on the environment. I also want to make sure that they are toxin free, as we all know that kids put things in their mouths!
Green Cricket has put together some of the best, most Eco-friendly school supplies for you in two convenient packages! A super easy way to make sure you are getting quality products. You can choose from the Head of the Class Bundle, which includes everything your child will need for their pencil case (not including the pencil case), and the Everything but the Backpack Bundle, which includes, well, everything but the backpack! Both of these bundles will give you an excellent start on your back to school shopping.
Green Cricket has made a commitment to finding the greenest products possible, and being totally transparent about what ingredients are in the products, as well as how they are manufactured, and what they are packaged in. They have done their research so you don't have to! You can read all about their process here.
Green Cricket offers much more than just pencils and notebooks though! You can find everything from laundry detergent to hand bags! How about some organic tea or coffee? Recyclable razors? A toothbrush made from recycled plastic? You really should browse through the awesome products available from Green Cricket! You won't be disappointed.
I am so excited to be offering this amazing giveaway! One very lucky reader will be walking away with an "Everything but the Backpack" back to school bundle! This is an amazing prize and will give your child a good start on their back to school shopping.
