This is all the trash my son generated this school year! Not too bad!!! 😁
I finally made time to go through the stack of school materials and projects he brought home at the end of the school year. I was able to reuse or recycle all of it except for two laminated pages from his agenda.
Here’s what we did:
– We flipped through all the worksheets and kept the pages that were only used on one side—these will go in our scrap paper drawer 😊 Since my son started school, I’ve never had to by paper for my office! 😆
– We went through all his notebooks and carefully tore out the unused pages so we could reuse them. Several notebooks were barely used, so I tore out the used pages and will send my son back to school with these almost-new notebooks next school year.
– The binder, dividers, page protectors, ruler, writing utensils and folders will all be reused next year 👍
– What was left—a stack of paper and notebooks—went in my recycling bin.
How do you reduce waste when it comes to school supplies?
