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 hang out with a bunch of different groups of people.. All of which have drama. And it is NOT fun. They all expect me to choose a side and start making me feel bad so that I would HAVE to pick them. It really doesn't make me feel so good, I don't know what to do. :/
