Fall is just around the corner. I can’t wait for school to start again! I bet you’re all excited to be getting back too. There’s plenty that needs to be prepped, but I don’t mind, because starting a new school year is always so much fun. Here in LA we like to move it, move it! Let’s take a look at all the ways you can get ready for school!

Go Back to School in Style

Revamping your style is a great way to get ready to go back to school. This year let’s make things a little more green. Prepare for the new year by going through your summer items and seeing what you need and don’t need. You can donate your old clothes and accessories. Cute boots are perfect for the fall, cute vegan boots are even better!

You can’t go back to school without having all the supplies you need for the new year. However, just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean the supplies have to be new too. You can always recycle or upcycle materials. Purchase a cool BPA free plastic container for lunch or a reusable lunch bag. Put the Seven Year Pen to the test and see if it really lasts that long.

There’s lots of ways you can make your school more green. Start simple and work your way up to bigger projects. Make your own DIY school supplies. Then get yours friends involved, then your class, and soon the entire school will catch on! Start your own recycling center. Get together with other students faculty and start a campuswide compost program.
