O’BON – Eco Friendly School And Office Supplies! (Giveaway – 3 Winners)

CONTESTS, REVIEWS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | | April 21, 2010 at 8:49 pm

CONTEST CLOSED!

Congratulations, Char, CandCan and TrixTrix!

The fact the eco friendly products are creeping into every aspect of our life from cooking, to cleaning to playing it was overdue that it made an entrance into the school and office supplies arena. Judging by the amount of paper that just my PreK kid brings home in her backpack, is alone scary. As much as we move online for most everything we have to acknowledge paper is going nowhere. O’BON built on the concept that these basic supplies could be created without a negative impact to the world.

They started with making pencils from newspaper instead of wood. I guess we all know how much in (over) abundance newspapers are – you would just need to look around any public transport system to find out how much, so it makes sense to use it. The quality itself is pretty good and you won’t suffer for usability. I found the products to be lighter, which is also an added bonus – imagine your bulging kid’s backpack. The designs are also with the thought of with care – with the aim to remind children of environment with their animal designs. O’BON also supports schools in fundraising efforts and also through proceeds from purchases going to environmental causes, which you can have a hand in choosing.

Win an O’BON product of choice!

    I’m a tutor, so I can always use more school supplies — especially eco-friendly ones to covertly convert my students to greener lifestyles.
