Animal Bands

This school supply works like a standard rubber band but instead of coming in a circle shape they start as either zoo animals or pets. They’ll even go back to their original animal shape after you use them! They are sold by Unica and come in a box of 24 for around $8.

Green Supplies

Staples Eco Easy products include eco-friendly notebooks made from 80% bagasse, a sugarcane waste. The bagasse line also uses eco-conscious vegetable and water-based inks for printing. There are also Hilroy exercise books made from 30% post-consumer waste and environmentally friendly ink, Westcot KleenEarth scissors with green handles made from 70% recycled plastic and biodegradable report covers that are not only reusable but also biodegradable. When you are done using them you can throw them away as they have a starch-based cellulose additive that makes them biodegradable in a landfill.

    I Feel like I should paste this here  Always remember this: Someone out there loves you. May be here online or on the other side of the world but they would care that you died. Now please put down that knife/blade or rope or gun or anything and think "do you want things to get better" or "do you want the chance of things getting better to be eliminated. Now let your scars fade and remember these words "I care"

    I think its really great you posted this, cause a lot of people need it. Adults don't notice children problems. When I was in 2ed grade i was bullied by teens that were like 16. Not only that, teachers can bully kids too. My mom always puts people who try to kill them selves down in awful ways. Every time she says that stuff I am very offended by it cause she knows I have emotional problems but she still like to dig into it. Someone who feels they need to kill themselves needs someone to trust and talk to. I'm so happy you posted this. Cause it is so true!
