It’s never too early to start educating children on the importance of protecting the environment. Using these products, all of which are made with recycled post-consumer content, teachers are not only able to explain concepts like recycling, but also offer an up close and personal object lesson on the virtues of going green.


In addition to being excellent pens because of their 1.0 mm ball points and quick drying ink, BIC Ecolutions Round Stic Ball Pens are made with an environmentally conscious 74 percent post-consumer recycled content. The point type makes this an great choice for young students to practice their penmanship.

Dry Erase Markers

For teachers, a quality nontoxic dry-erase marker needs three things: the ability to wipe off a whiteboard cleanly, a chisel point that allows for writing with different widths, and ink that dries quickly enough to prevent smearing. The Office Depot® Low-Odor Dry-Erase Markers possess all of those qualities, and they’re made from 100 percent recycled plastic.


The two-sided Westcott Plastic 30 Percent Recycled Ruler is an ideal tool with which to teach measurements in United States customary units and metric systems. Also an ideal tool to use with children, these plastic rulers are made out of durable plastic that contains 30 percent post-consumer recycled content.

Flip Charts & Markers

When it comes to classroom activities, there are few things as engaging for students as using markers and a flip chart to solve a problem or express their artistic creativity. Office Depot® Easel Pad Markers and Post-it® 30 Percent Recycled Self-Stick Easel Pads are uniquely suited for flip chart-related activities. The markers are recommended because they create full and vibrant lines that won’t bleed through. The pads are recommended because their adhesive backed sheets are easy to tear away and take home for placement on the refrigerator door. And both products are made with large quantities of post-consumer recycled content.
