Back to School

Recycle any packaging in your lunch box.
Pack a cloth napkin instead of paper one. 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 up last years school supplies before you buy new ones.
Use the reverse side of scrap paper for your first drafts of writing, art and math projects.
