Going Green for the Back-to-School Season

September 8, 2009 at 6:29 am Leave a comment

Many people are making efforts to green-up their lifestyle, and the back-to-school season provides many opportunities to do so.

Hello everyone! My name is Melissa, and I’m an intern for EnAct Wisconsin. As a student at UW-Madison studying conservation biology and environmental studies, this blog is right up my alley! I will be sharing useful tips and ideas for how you can make little and big changes in your life to help the environment (and save money at the same time).

By reusing old pencils and pens, purchasing recycled paper (and then recycling it), using a reusable lunch box and containers, or taking the bus to school, parents and students can both save money and help the environment (an important thing for every family, since the average student in the U.S. produces 240 pounds of waste per year!). This Planet Green article provides many more useful tips for going green while going back to school.

Have a fun, green school year!
Melissa
