We always buy recycled paper, and notebooks. You can also use hand me downs, and try garage sales. Thanks so much for the opportunity. planetmisty at gmail dot com

Inventory what you have first. Look all around the house to see what's left over from last year or what fell behind the desk that you never even realized was there. Chances are, you'll find some pens, pencils, paper, etc that you didn't even realize you had. That way, you're buying less and leaving less waste.

We stopped at an outlet mall on our way home from vacation and did all our shopping in a single stop.

donate what you don't need that does not fit or have a neighborhood trade of clothes for the right size

i'd like to see kids walking to school again and might submit this idea to all the "eco-conscious" kids in the schools, sort of a challenge...

My eco-friendly tip is to take the bus instead of driving there.

Put a damp wash cloth in a baggie in with yourlunch.Use that to clean up after lunch,hands,table, etc., put back in baggie, and u throw it in the laundry. Saves on paper usage

Lunch Here is what I do. Use a reusable water bottle, even though it is plastic I do not throw it away as I use it to hold sandwich - I can wash this over and over and not have to use ziploc bags....I do the same for veggies/fruit. I have had the same containers for several years

Use lunch boxes instead of brown bags. The kids like them better anyway because they can feature their favorite characters!

Buy used whenever possible and if not look for clothes/supplies etc that are made with recycled or eco-friendly materials. I also try to pack a mostly organic lunch for my daughter. Thanks!
