Making your school supplies list? We are starting to demand more and more of the products we buy these days. Would it be too much to ask to find eco-friendly, durable, USA-made options for some of the things on that list? We’ll try to make your shopping a little easier this year because we have come up with some solutions for the domestically-produced, eco-friendly standard you have set for your children’s back to school supplies.
Here are some companies that could provide you with a great alternative to the office supplies you are searching for:
You can find 3-ringed Binders, Half Sheet Binders, Tab Sets and Folders from this company. Their entire product line is 100% recycled and recyclable, 100% post-consumer waste, FCS certified and made in the USA.  They also support environmental and community programs.
If notebook paper isn’t your favorite then maybe you should think about buying an eco-friendly Spiral Notebook. These are versatile and allow you to have everything you need in one place. Environotes allows you to have these great notebooks but are better for the environment.Clementine Art
For younger students or the more artistically inclined, Clementine Art produces Crayons, Modeling Dough, Paint, Markers, and Glue. In addition to being made in the USA, they are all-natural, certified non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and their packaging is made of 100% post-consumer recycled and reusable materials.

Write Dudes USA Gold
Distributed by MegaBrands and The Write Dudes, USA Gold Pencils are manufactured in Lewisburg, Tennessee of sustained-yield California incense cedar, meaning the wood does not come from rainforests and they smell good to boot. They are inexpensive and come in a distinctive natural finish with a green latex-free eraser.

We hope that this has helped you to start powering through your list for this Back to School season.  Are you trying to get back to buying American when you shop for back to school this year? Share your finds in the comments below.
