Union-made back to school shopping list

Click to download

When we think of end of summer and “back to school,” most of us flash to days gone by when our young scholars actually left the house – backpacks stuffed with new supplies – to go back to their physical classroom. For the time being, that won’t be possible for most of us, and our sons and daughters will be pursuing their education from the comfort of home. Still, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be loading up on notebooks, art supplies and the other items that, even from home, they will need to stay prepared and organized. We’ve thrown in a couple of sanitary items because things like tissues are especially important now. The products listed below are made by companies that treat their workers fairly and give them a voice on the job.

Study hard, stay healthy and let’s all work together to build a stronger America.
