Save Money, Look Stylish, Go Green


As college students, we are always trying to find ways to find a balance between affordability and style. Today, buying earth-friendly products has been added to the mix but unfortunately, these items can be a bit pricy. These great buys for back-to-school will not only save you money down the road, but there’s an added bonus: these products will help you go green!

The Brita Pitcher has been around for quite some time, but now there are more colors than ever to choose from such as violet, green, chrome, yellow, orange, pink and white all available at Target for only $25. Although you do have to change the filter about every two months, you can get a 4 pack for only $19.99 that will last you the entire school year! Think of all the money you’ll be saving by avoiding the water bottles from the vending machines.

For those of you who live off campus and pack your own lunch or bring it to work, Lunchskins sells reusable sandwich bags and snack bags, which will replace your Ziplock bags. These bags are dishwasher safe and you wont have to worry about buying and throwing away plastic bags. The best part is that they come in three sizes and in the most adorable patterns.

Don’t think I’ve forgotten about the best part of back-to-school shopping. The every day must-have for going to class is of course, a v-neck tee. The great thing about v-neck tees is that you can dress them up or down and they are always comfortable. Alternative has launched an organic collection of tees, which are made with organic cotton and recycled polyester.
