Summer's winding down, and it's time to sharpen those pencils! While Americans have spent less on school supplies this year, the average family still spends about $550. Instead of shopping at a big box store, why not support some independent crafters and get a few of your back to school supplies in green to boot?
Need to tote your computer around? Check out this organic laptop sleeve from Multidimensionality (to the right)! She knits the bag with organic cotton yarn, and it's got organic cotton and bamboo batting to keep your laptop safe and sound!
Keep those pens and pencils together in style with Rohmer's awesome owl pencil case (picured above)! She stamps the organic cotton canvas with her own, handmade owl stamp. Whoot! Whoot!
For lunchtime, check out my handmade, reusable lunch bags that Matt wrote about not too long ago.
These hand printed Eco-Binders from Urban Posture are rocking our socks (on the left)! The binders are 100% recycled and 97% post consumer waste. Not only that, they are completely recyclable. They do all of their printing with water-based inks and have a bunch of beautiful binder designs to choose from.
