Talk about refreshing. A  national coalition called Teens Turning Green is encouraging teens and parents in the United States to make “ec0-informed purchases” when they do their back-to-school shopping.

There’s a web-based guide to help called Project Green Dorm. It launches on July 30 and will include a Take Action Toolkit with tips, photos, product recommendations, advice and other information.

Think about the kind of change a project like this could bring. Kids and parents making green choices when they spend their back-to-school money.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, folks in the U.S. spend more than $7 billion a year on back-to-school clothing, and more than $2 billion on books.
