It’s that time of year for many families when children are getting ready to go back to school. For our home educating family, going back to school is a little different, because we don’t really stop over the summer, although August is a bit of a slowing down month. However, all our group activities start up again in September so we still need to get prepared for that.
But for those of you with children going to school, here are a couple of great ideas and then I will share what we use for keeping healthy naturally when school starts back!
We have Bear who has very sensitive skin and allergies, and wearing cotton really helps his skin. But have you noticed that school uniforms tend to be made of polyester, or polycotton? Obviously we don’t need uniforms, but I have found out that two mums, Marina and Irina, were not happy that natural alternatives weren’t availlable, and so they have set up EcoOutfitters so you can send your children off to school in 100% pure organic cotton school uniforms. They have pinafores, shirts, trousers, PE kits, socks and tights, and much more! Check out EcoOutfitters here.
While I was looking at the uniforms on EcoOutfitters, I also saw that they have some organic cotton lunch bags, and reusable Kozy Wrap. If you fancy a different design, the eco-friendly living site Spirit of Nature has some recycled lunch bags in several designs which are currently on sale with a 20% discount, and they also stock reusable food baggies from Keep Leaf which are a great alternative to plastic wrapping.
