back to school by Lel4ndAre your kids back in school? Mine are, and boy, are they tired! So am I. Facing all the lunch packing, forms, homework, and running around, well, it has me dreaming of next summer!

I've found some great resources to help with this transition.  Here you'll find eco-friendly, safe and healthy lunch information, how to find safer lunch gear, resources for helping your child's school or daycare become more non-toxic and green, and more. We had a very informative and fun #EcoTipTue tweet chat this Tuesday with even more tips that I will post about soon.

What about you?  What are your favorite back to school traditions? Or are you just too swamped to even get kids wrangled into clean clothes, pack the lunch, and get them there on time? If you have any time at all, here's some great back to school reading:
  • The Center for Health and Justice's PVC Free Back to School Guide. This is a fabulous resource that covers art supplies, notebooks, backpacks, clothing and accessories.
  • The Green Moms have done it again!  Here is a fantastic back to school carnival featuring healthy lunches, better school supplies, greener gear, safer schools, positive action, and tips for teachers. Tons of great reading here.
I'd love to hear from you, please share any of your back to school traditions, tips, or links to helpful posts you've found. Wishing you and  your family a smooth transition back to school!
