Direct Energy Buzz August 23 Edition

This week has come and gone in a flash! The kids are getting ready to head back to school and summer is coming to a close. We took some time to share some of our favorite back-to-school tips this week from school supplies to healthy (and green) lunches. Do you have any eco-friendly back-to-school tips? Share them with us on our Facebook page!

Heading back to the classroom can be an exciting time, but it can also generate a ton of waste.  On Monday, one of our tips was to save energy, time and money by reusing supplies from last year. Make using the same backpack twice as fun with this DIY backpack decoration tutorial.

Think about how many brown paper bags and plastic utensils end up in the garbage every year…what a waste! This year, make a difference by reading through Wednesday’s blog.
