Environmentally-Friendly Back-to-School Supplies Made With Bamboo
Going back to school will undoubtedly feel a little bit different this fall as many children prepare to enter their classrooms for the first time since they were forced to abruptly leave their favorite teachers and friends when the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation last spring. Although we are certainly not out of the woods just yet, the United States has been making incredible strides in the fight against COVID-19 and thankfully our hardworking educators and students will be back in action for the 2021-2022 academic school year.
After months and months of homeschooling, Zoom meetings, and all-around restrictions that were rightfully in place, many of us began to have these eye-opening realizations about how incredibly important our family, friends, and freedoms truly are, and how perhaps they’ve been overlooked and probably taken for granted, including the larger things in life like climate change, global warming, and how we need to step up and do our small part to protect the planet for generations to come. So, with millions of kiddos heading back to school, let this be a teaching opportunity for you and a learning moment for your children as you inform them about the eco-friendly benefits of purchasing ‘green’ products, starting with bamboo-crafted back-to-school supplies.
As one of the most versatile and sustainable resources on the market, many manufacturers and suppliers for big box stores and online retailers have recently jumped on the bamboo bandwagon by offering consumers a variety of bamboo products that are both healthy for the environment and easy on the bank account. One great example is the incorporation of bamboo into commonly used school supplies, including:
- Notebooks and stationery
- Pencils, pens, cases, and sharpeners
- Crayons and colored pencils
- Folders, binders, and staplers
- Backpacks, drawing pads, and laptop covers
In addition to these smaller bamboo school supplies, teachers can utilize bamboo desks, tables, wall coverings, cabinetry, bookshelves, and other larger décor in their classrooms that will also provide the same eco-friendly benefits.
Our wish here at Bamboo Grove is that by instilling the importance of climate change awareness at an early age, we can eventually finish this seemingly endless battle against global warming with a little help from bamboo.
