U Konserve was started six years ago by two moms who were shocked by the amount of lunchtime trash generated each day in their children’s school. Here’s a scary fact: one child produces 67 pounds of lunchtime trash each year!! One of their most popular products, the Waste-Free Lunch Kit, features a cotton sack, cloth napkin, 13 ounce stainless steel beverage bottle, two leak proof 8 ounce containers for snacks and sides and a Food Kozy Wrap for a sandwich or crackers. Perfect for lunch all year round!
Green Apple Supply
Green Apple Supply believes that eco products should be affordable for everyone. They feel that without a universal shift in consumption, our physical ability to inhabit the planet is limited, so it needs to be easy to do something to make a difference. To this end, they offer a variety of everyday back-to-school supplies including colored pencils, paper, construction paper and backpacks that are made with the Earth in mind.
