Stubby Pencil Studio Provides School Supplies that are Smart, Long-lasting and Better for the Environment

It's Eco-Cool for Back to School!

"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."

    PORTLAND, OR, July 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 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.

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

"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.
