Back to School with TreeSmart Recycled School Supplies

I’m always on the lookout for ways I can live greener. So, when TreeSmart contacted me about reviewing some products in their line of recycled school and office supplies, I took them up on their offer! They sent me one of their All Star Recycle Sets (which includes 12 Newspaper Pencils, a Recycled Ruler, and Color Pencil Set) in exchange for a review.


I was very impressed with the quality of our TreeSmart pencils! They sharpen easily, write cleanly, and erase nicely. I also love how you can still see a bit of the newsprint on the pencil itself! The little 6″ ruler was great, too. It’s the perfect size for a school pencil pouch. 🙂


My favorite product, however, was the colored pencil set! They come pre-sharpened in a cute little cardboard tube. Little man LOVED to color with these, and sort them, and name all of the colors he knows.


For those of you in education – TreeSmart offers a wonderful school recycling and fundraising program! You can send in clean newspapers, and in exchange, you receive pencils with your organization’s text and logo on them!

TreeSmart is based in the US, and has been making recycled school and office supply products since 1998. Learn more about the company here, and be sure to follow them on social media – Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

    I’ve seen those colored pencil tubes before! Glad to know you liked them. 🙂

    Isn’t it funny how the quality of pencils can vary so much from one brand to the next? I never would have thought it would matter so much. . .

  5. I’d love to use more recycled supplies. Nice tip about the fundraising/newspaper program, too. I bet that’s easy and a win/win for everyone.

    I love recycling anything you can as well! They looked like they were good quality!

    What a neat company! When I was a school teacher, we did a unit on conservation and recycling. We had a company in our local area donate school supplies to my class made out of recyclables. The kids had such a fun time guessing what their pencils and rulers used to be!

  8. I’m happy that more and more companies are striving to be eco-friendly!
