Clean and Green Ideas For Back To School!

Planetpals ™  Helps you go back to school in Green

Here are a few ways you can help the planet this school year...Remember, every litter bit helps! 
  • Reuse backpacks, and containers for school items, sports items instead of buying new ones.
  • Use up last year's school supplies before you replace them
  • Take your lunch in a reusable lunch box, or cloth bag instead of paper bags..
  • Recycle any packaging in your lunch box.
  • Pack a cloth napkin instead of paper napkin. You can reuse it! Just count all your school days...that's how many paper napkins you saved.
  • Cover your books in recycled paper bags or wrap... decorate them yourself, they could look fun and you might start a trend!
  • Use the reverse side of scrap paper for your first drafts of writing, art and math projects.
  • Keep a "craft box" of discards you think might be handy for class projects during the year...mark it "my craft box" so no-one will mistake it for trash! Keep things like empty yogurt containers, elastics, string etc...that might interesting and useful for your art.
  • Take the bus or Car-pool with friends...have your moms take turns...It's fun to go to school in groups and you save lots of gas!.
  • Remember masks, use reusable ones!
  • Ask your teacher to put up Planetpals recycle kits posters to remind everyone at school about recycling.
