As the last few weeks of summer wind down, it's easy to get caught up in the rush and stress of back-to-school planning -- and to be taken in by all those glossy ads for new pencils, notebooks, and art gear. We'd wager that a careful search of your home would turn up plenty of loose-leaf paper, crayons, markers, and pens with at least another school year left in them -- but if you still need to supplement your supplies, then choose recycled, eco-friendly, and sustainable versions of everything from pencils to backpacks for your elementary, junior high, and high school students.
