-- What's the savviest new idea for school? Buying eco-smart school supplies
, of course. All parents are familiar with the mad rush to buy supplies before classes start and it can be a real challenge - and even more difficult to know which items are toxic free and ecologically safe. Visit the store at StubbyPencilStudio.com
Stubby Pencil Studio is trying to shift the thinking of parents toward school supply alternatives - with a good reason. Countless millions of crayons, pencils, markers and other school supplies end up in our landfills and it's time to think about getting maximum use, using safer materials, and stemming the massive tide of waste we produce.
Why Eco-Friendly Back-to-School?
Quality supplies perform better and last longer - producing less waste
Non-toxic and safe for kids - less exposure to chemicals
Responsible manufacturing - made with sustainably sourced and recycled materials
Natural and plant based - no petroleum waxes
Made by US and European vendors with high safety standards
"Each year, we sell out of our eco-friendly back to school supplies and packs. Parents want better choices, longer lasting supplies, and they want to know that the materials their children touch, use and interact with are safe, non-toxic and well made," said Kate Rosenthal, owner of Stubby Pencil Studio.
Stubby Pencil Studio Eco School Supply Recommendations:
Soy Crayons - made from soy and plant based waxes NOT petroleum
Eco friendly colored and #2 graphite pencils - made from FSC certified wood
E-colorgy Washable Markers - water based inks, made from partially recycled plastic
Highlighter Pencils - no plastics, no ink solvents, and no volatile organic compounds
Scissors - made from high quality, long lasting titanium
Watercolor paints - bright, long lasting colors and refillable
Bamboo rulers - made from sustainable bamboo, NOT plastic
Natural Rubber Erasers - PCV free
Glue sticks and paste - made from potato starch (no solvents) and gluten free
"I always recommend that parents try to get the school supply lists early and see if Stubby Pencil Studio can supply some items on that list. We constantly hear from parents that they are happy with the quality and durability of our products," said Rosenthal.
