Green your back-to-school (or work) routine


As you prepare your children to go back to school, now is the perfect time to renew your commitment to protecting the environment and to encouraging healthier lunchtime habits.

• Invest in see-through water bottles – many schools require transparency, and this is a good reminder to stay hydrated.

• Purchase reusable food-storage containers instead of single-serving snacks, and pack them with nutritious apples, carrots and peanut butter.

• Check local secondhand stores to give new life to school uniforms, vintage backpacks or desks.

WM offers complimentary tool kits on RecycleOftenRecycleRight.com, to help you recycle right at home or school.
