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

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.

Pottery Barn Kids

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.
