back to school: the green way

you know summer is drawing to a close when all the back to school adverts start cropping up. saw an interesting article in the globe and mail about what some families are doing for a more economical and environmentally-friendly approach to the back to school season. it's all about reusing!

reduce your forkprint!

last weekend while at lilith fair, i came across this great reusable portable utensil set. it's by a company called to-go ware. the set includes a fork, spoon, knife, and a set of chopsticks all made from bamboo. the utensils are all housed in a slim case with a carabiner attached to it so that you can clip it on to another bag. each set is made from recycled plastic, saving one plastic bottle from ending up in a landfill. good for the environment, stylish, and practical too!
