I LOVE school supply shopping. Back to school season was always my favourite time of year because I couldn’t wait to browse all the school supply aisles and pick out the stuff I’d get to use all year. So when I had a baby, one of the perks was that down the road I would get to do the whole school supply shopping thing again!
London Drugs carries a wide range of products from Onyx + Green, a school and office supply company that makes their products from mostly recycled and natural materials, to help increase student and parent awareness for protecting the environment. I am so stoked that there are some great eco friendly alternatives readily available!
This is my daughter’s eco friendly school supplies list from London Drugs.
2 – ONYX + GREEN scissors – stainless steel scissors with corn plastic handles. Recycled and soy-based ink packaging.
3 – ONYX + GREEN bamboo ballpoint pens – retractable ballpoint pens with corn plastic tips and clips, with bodies made from bamboo. Recycled and soy-based ink packaging.
4 – ONYX + GREEN recycled rubber erasers – made from recycled rubber! Cool!
5 – ONYX + GREEN bamboo ruler – made from sustainable bamboo!
6 – ONYX + GREEN glue sticks – 88% natural glue formula.
7 – Staedtler Wopex HB Pencils – eco pencils with a PVC & latex-free eraser
8 – ONYX + GREEN 10 pencils – I love that these are made with recycled newspaper!
9 – ONYX + GREEN 12 coloured pencils – They even have recycled newspaper coloured pencils! Score!!
10 – ONYX + GREEN ballpoint pens – retractable ballpoint pens made from recycled PET (plastic bottles). Recycled and soy-based ink packaging.
11 – Hilroy Interlined Exercise Book – made with recycled paper that is 30% post-consumer waste.
12 – Hilroy Exercise Book 1/2 Plain – made with recycled paper that is 30% post-consumer waste.
13 – Cascades enviro facial tissues – I exclusively buy this brand of facial tissue because it’s the only one I’ve found that is made of 100% recycled fibres. Public schools ask students to bring their own boxes of facial tissues – so we’ll be sending these to school as well!
And… I couldn’t resist picking up a few things for myself too!
ONYX + GREEN recycled gel pens – ooooh, gel pens! smooth….
ONYX + GREEN recycled clear sticky notes – How cool is this??? Clear sticky notes! Recycled! Love!
I am so excited about these eco friendly school supplies for both my daughter and me. I love how committed London Drugs is to being environmentally responsible, including carrying eco friendly stationery supplies.
