eco pencils, treesmart pencils, back to school

Treesmart Industries Pencils

Some might argue that mechanical pencils are more eco-friendly than recycled pencils. But since most children don’t end up refilling their non-biodegradable mechanical pencils and they end up in the trash, we think these recycled newspaper pencils are the way to go! Treesmart Industries uses rolled-up recycled newspapers to make their pencils here in the USA.

ecogear bookbag, kids panda bookbag, cotton bookbag

Kids Panda Book Bag

Lots of book bags are made with PVC, petroleum byproducts, harmful dyes, and other toxic chemicals that are bad for the environment and your child. PVC’s lifecycle is harmful from the time it is made to the time it is disposed. It continuously releases chemical gases which can have long term health affects. This is why it’s important to look for bags that are made with natural materials like cotton, hemp, or bamboo. Ecogear has a kids line of backpacks made out of natural cotton, non-toxic dyes, and sustainable wood components at very affordable prices.
