Four Environmentally Friendly Back-to-School Tips

Making a list for the back-to-school shopping? Consider focusing on what's good for the environment.

Waste Management of San Diego offers four Mother Nature-friendly habits worth adopting this school year.

  • Pack a lunch with reusable gear: Buy a reusable lunch box or recycle those brown paper bags. Doing this will also help families save money on food.
  • Purchase products made from recycled materials: Buy products that can be recycled like an ink-cartridge that can be refilled rather than buying a new one.
  • Utilize carpools or public transportation: Team up with another family and carpool your children to school. Or even better, use public transportation.
  • Turn off and unplug appliances when you are not using them: Turn off those desktop computers, lights and other appliances when you're not using them.
