Environmental carpe diem

Nothing says back to school like the smell of new pencils -- and though you could choose a biodegradable mechanical version, these PaperMate EarthWrite pencils, made from reclaimed cedar, let you make the most of otherwise wasted wood.
Of course, to keep that pencil as pointed as the mechanical kind, you'll need a sharpener: Try the Kum biodegradable pencil sharpener, which includes two different sized holes for keeping your art pencils and writing tools fine-tipped. (PaperMate EarthWrite pencils, $1.80/dozen; Kum sharpener, $3.75)
