Its back to school time and to be honest this is the first year that I've given much thought to eco-friendly school products. Usually the teachers just give you a list and you fight the crowds at the local Walmart to get everything together.
I don't know if I paid attention before but I definitely noticed this year that the teachers actually put the brand of the supplies that they want! Well this time I've taken things a bit different and contacted some companies online who offer eco-friendly school supplies.
The Stubby Pencil Studio was very gracious in sending me these great eco-friendly back to school products for review.
My package contained the following:
The Stubby Pencil Studio has made a commitment to finding quality eco-conscious products for our children. It started with the Thank You cards which are a lesson for children in themselves. Your child can color and write their own thank you notes, teaching them appreciation both for the people around them and for the environment because the cards are printed on 100% PCW recycled stock.
The Eco-friendly Colored Pencils are manufactured from California Incense-cedar wood and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council to have originated from environmentally well-managed forests. My front porch is made of cedar, these pencils smell like home! :)
The Ice Cream Cone and Unicorn erasers are eco-friendly and non-toxic: no lead, no paint, no phthalates, no PVC, no latex and they are recyclable, not to mention extremely cute! They pull apart like puzzle pieces and my daughter instantly fell in love with them!
Overall these are wonderful products and I love supporting companies who are trying to make a difference in our environment. Every little bit helps so please make sure to stop by the Stubby Pencil Studio. They have the products listed here but so many more as well!
Offering families eco-friendly art materials and supplies that are healthy for people and the environment, like non toxic crayons made from soy - not petroleum; sketchbooks made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper - not virgin trees; and pencils made from sustainably harvested wood and recycled newspapers - not dying forests. We know the artist in your life will enjoy our art supplies as much as we do.
