One of my favorite memories of childhood is shopping for back to school items. I got such a thrill when the list of ‘must haves’ arrived from my school and I spent hours in the aisles of stored comparing and contrasting the best items based on price and style. While my affinity for shopping began young, now I add orGLAMic to the criteria list. Read below so that your kids can enjoy the Top Five orGLAMic Back To School Musts all year long.
Earthling Crayons offers 100% recycled and recyclable crayons for kids of all ages. I think the EcoStars are chic and fun, but browse the entire collection to find what is right for your product. With over 12 million petroleum-based crayons made in the United States every day, these products are clearly the orGLAMic alternative.
Sprout watches come in a dozen different colors and sizes, and I think their fun and funky look is great for orGLAMic kids of all ages. Made of corn-resin, bamboo, organic cotton and mineral crystal, and using mercury free batteries, these watches are orGLAMic every step of the way – and believe it or not, the case and buckle are even actually 100% biodegradable!
EcoGear makes a variety of backpacks, messenger bags, rolling packs and more for both children and adults. All the bags are made out of organic cotton, PVC-free materials, recycled plastics and toxic-free dyes and components. The fantastic designs only add to the fact that these are non-toxic, and free of chlorine, phthalates, dioxin or heavy metals.
Take notes in an Ecosystem journal and make school orGLAMic in a heartbeat. The company offers four varieties of equally useful books, depending on your needs: artist (blank pages), author (lined), advisor (calendar) and architect (grid). And in addition to onyx (my fave, surprise, surprise), the sleek and modern books are available in a variety of punchy colors such as kiwi, clementine, lagoon and watermelon. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and in the US under fair-trade standards, you really can’t go wrong with any combination.
And we all know that they key to a smooth transition into the school year (where temper tantrums are at a minimum!) is a good night’s sleep. You too can rest easy while your orGLAMic tot catches z’s on this Dr. Seuss bedding. Made of 200-thread count organic cotton percale this sheet set is Oeko-Tex certified, and as eco-conscious as it is adorable.
