Watch my video: How To Be Zero Waste and Plastic Free at School/Work
Hello everyone! I thought I would share a few tips on how to avoid plastic when purchasing school supplies. There are several options here, firstly I recommend you check out your local thrift store, I find tons of craft and school supplies that way. You can also target stores that specialise in plastic free alternatives, it is seriously heaven to browse those stores. I have mentioned Monomeer a lot in the past, because they have my favourite dental tabs, turns out they have a huge selection of office supplies, yay!
As my next semester is starting soon, it seems quite handy to have a few bits of school supplies. Especially the wooden stabler is something I am looking forward to. Many professors will not accept papers if they are not stabled, so in that case, this is pretty perfect! I take very few notes on actual paper, as I usually use my laptop, but the wooden ruler and pencil sharpener is primarily for my art supplies. I found my pencils second hand, but if you are less lucky, check out their plastic free pencil selection.
