Green Apple Supply began when Texas born philanthropist, entrepreneur, and environmental activist Stephanie Tobor took notice of a need for green, eco-friendly, cost efficient products. The Green Garage, started as a pilot program for local schools and parents, and expanded in 2011 when The Green Garage purchased Red Apple School Supply. Their mission is to make eco-friendly products affordable, and support healing our planet. Charitable donations are enhanced by DonationDouble.org.
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Green Apple Supply. It seems like everyday I am going a little greener so I couldn’t wait to review a product from Green Apple Supply. I was given a $25 Gift Card to pick out a few items to review. I picked out Friendly Dry Erase Markers Set of 4 $4, Jungle Vine Colored Pencils $2, Jungle Vine Pencils $2, and the ToySmith Green Science Dynamo Robot $14. It literally took me all day to decide what I finally wanted. Green Apple Supply offers a wide variety of neat products at very low prices. They offer everything from glue to star-shaped crayons, finger paint pad, trash bags, plates, glass water bottles, lunch totes, jewelry, bottle cap bowls, and a huge selection of toys. Everything you can think of can be found at Green Apple Supply. It didn’t take me long to receive my package and I don’t know who was more excited, myself, my girls, or my husband. I wanted to try out their Friendly Dry Erase Markers because regular dry erase markers have such a strong odor when you use them and, along with using it on my calendar, I also use it when I teach my youngest her ABC’s and her numbers. The markers did not have a strong smell and were very pleasant to use. I got the Colored Pencils and the Pencils for Aubreigh. Both are made out of tree branches and are also made by hand. The colored pencils come in a set of 10, as well as the pencils. I let Aubreigh take a few of her pencils to school to share with her classmates and they couldn’t believe they were writing with tree branches!! They are only $2 for a set of 10. I got the Dynamo Robot for my husband and Aubreigh to do together when she got out of school. The whole kit only cost $14!! It comes with everything you need (except the tools, of course). What else is great is that it doesn’t need batteries!! It is an awesome science project that used a “generator” that you hand crank to power the motor. Aubreigh used a CD to make her robot and decorated him.
Green Apple Supply is such an awesome place to find eco-friendly products. I suggest everyone check out this site. To head over and see what all they have to offer, visit here. There are so many neat items you may need to plan on spending around 2 hours on their site 🙂
