It is back to school for us this week. All the book bags are loaded with folders and supplies. The Uniforms are being put to full use along with our school shoes which of course our TOMS Shoes! But, we are still finding that we need more supplies for the school year. One Step Ahead has a whole section of back to school hard to find helpers to get your year started off right. In an effort to be more eco-friendly I am not using plastic bags for the kids snacks but instead have started using reusable snack and sandwich bags. Not only does it save money but it helps the environment to not have to throw away that plastic. The only thing now is that I have to remind the kids not to thrown away the reusable bags for me. One Step Ahead also has some great PVC free insulated lunch bags that are great for kids of any age.

By far my favorite back to school accessory from one step ahead. Have you seen all the news about how packed school lunches could make your kids sick? Read Prepacked School Lunches are Unsafe.

What’s in the lunch box? Whatever you want! That’s ‘cuz we designed our kids’ lunch bag to hold even bulky food containers (the kind that other lunch boxes can’t).
