TheGreenOffice.com, a national, online office supply retailer focused on sustainable green products, has partnered with Green School News to introduce a new line of green back-to-school kits for teachers and students. These grade-level-based kits contain eco-friendly and non-toxic alternatives to conventional school supplies, and range in price from $16.99 for K-2 students to $49.99 for a teacher's kit.

"As a former educator, I'm committed to helping our schools go green," says Alex Szabo, CEO of TheGreenOffice.com. "We want to make it as easy and cost-effective as possible for parents and teachers to select school supplies that are safe for both our children and the environment."

These affordable green back-to-school kits are based on standard school supply lists, with one major distinction---every item is either made with recycled material or is biodegradable, compostable, reusable, green-certified or has reduced chemical content. Free, next-day, carbon-neutral shipping is available with purchases of $49 or more. Each kit comes with easy-to-follow classroom greening tips and is available exclusively at TheGreenOffice.com.

According to a recent survey by Deloitte, 71% of American consumers hope to spend less this year on school supplies, while 41% still want green products. TheGreenOffice.com's green back-to-school kits are offered at a up to 25% off regular prices and each item is carefully labeled based on greenness.

"Our publication's mission is to help schools and the communities they serve, green up their practices at school and at home," says Peter Zinn, founder of Green School News. "These kits are an example of how choosing non-toxic and eco-friendly products doesn't have to be difficult or expensive."
