Whether you're sending your oldest child off to his first day as a freshman or helping your youngest prepare for the beginning of her senior year, making sure your kids have the green gear they need for a successful year at college is no small task.

This year, you can outfit them with the most essential items -- from classics with a contemporary twist (recycled paper notebooks, reclaimed leather messenger bags, and stainless steel coffee mugs) to modern gifts with a timeless edge (paper-saving e-readers, organic duvet covers, organic food deliveries) -- all by following the suggestions in this guide.
