Going back to school with a green notebook will cost you

Back to school time can be filled with fun as your kids anticipate a new year, a fresh crack at the subjects they love (recess, lunch, Chatting with Peers 101 etc.) and you get to send the lovelies off (their derrières and the couch) and back into some sort of forward-lurching motion toward a fulfilling and educated future.

But just try to send them with greener school supplies. Chances are you’ll be frustrated. I’ve been at this for a few years and have searched many glaringly lit mega stores and combed countless websites looking for reasonably priced, good quality notebooks, binders, pens and pencils made from recycled material.
