Recycle Last Year's Supplies


Give the Earth and your pocketbook a rest this school year by recycling old folders, binders, notebooks, and other supplies. Tear out and recycle used pages from old notebooks, and use the remaining fresh pages this year. Give last year's supplies a new look with contact paper, stickers, wrapping paper, photographs, or magazine cutouts. Make sure you keep supplies like calculators, rulers, protractors, and sharpeners, because they can be used for several years.
