Back to school: Go Green With School Supplies

Walking through a mall last week, I was surprised too see the volume of "Back to School!" signs posted everywhere I looked. I can't believe it's that time of the year already.

I'm sure that a lot of parents feel the same way, and are suddenly under pressure to stock up for the coming school year. Clothes, lunches, pens and paper—it can be a daunting task, and often eco-friendly considerations fall to the wayside. Fortunately, this Philly.com article offers strategies for "going green" in the search for school supplies. Whether it's reusable cutlery or a pre-school clothing swap, there are plenty of easy ways to reduce, reuse, recycle.
