Back to School

Turning Green and industry leaders are working to create a more sustainable future through greater access to affordable, ethical products for the generation that leads the way, you! We’ve curated a Back-to-School checklist with our favorite ethical brands as you head back to school in a conscious state of mind! 

Back-to-school is the best time to assess your personal footprint and take practical steps to reduce it. Our checklist and themed resources will give you some ways to  green the back-to-school experience, whether in a dorm, off-campus housing, or an apartment. This program seeks harness your purchasing power to support positive social and environmental impact.
As you move in and curate your new living space, we encourage you to buy less and shop smart. Look for labels like USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Verified, BPA Free, Fair Trade, and 100% post-consumer recycled, as well as seeking out items that are second hand, recycled, or upcycled. If you buy new, support businesses that are doing right by people and planet. Informed consumers will change the world!
