Most people buy plastic folders because they are durable. Schools even specify this request on their supply lists. But there is a problem. These folders still get beat-up and bent. Each school year we buy new ones and toss the used ones in the trash where they live on as plastic pollution.
Plastic isn't necessary to protect our papers. A firm cardboard paper folder will do the trick just fine. I love these folders from Wisdom Supply Co. They are simple, sturdy, and backyard compostable at the end of the school year.
If your school requests different color folders, let your kids use colored pencils or crayons to draw designs in the specified color. Two of my kids love doing this. The third doesn't care, so I just create a thick red, yellow, green, or blue stripe across the front cover. It works great.
When you need to buy folders, skip the plastic ones. Head to Wisdom Supply Co. and choose these super eco-friendly folders instead. You'll love your zero waste swap!
