The time has almost come once again to start planning what you need to buy for the new school year; but instead of buying what you would each year, make sure to check out this new line of eco-friendly school supplies at Staples from Free The Children's Me to We project. This way not only will your kids be sporting colorful and sustainable school goodies, but both you and your kids will be helping make a difference by sending thousands of children in Latin America, Africa and Asia to school.
Each product purchased from the eco-friendly school supplies line at Staples will be a life-changing gift to a child in need, so it's a clear winner. The line boasts everything from backpacks and lunch bags to tablet sleeves to notebooks -- and they're all made from materials like recycled plastic bottles and post-consumer paper.
"Me to We's new line of school supplies make it easy for our customers to access sustainable products, and drive a global mentality of sustainability, specifically in the areas we're most passionate about, education and environmentalism," says Pete Gibel, VP of Merchandising, Staples Canada.
