  1. What a cool idea! When you got to the Reasons part, I got chills. It’s so true! We’re a bit too early for school supplies, but I will keep these goals in mind for our craft box! For little kids, another green idea is to repurpose things you’d otherwise toss, like half-used office supplies, or cutting up magazines for collages.
