I have a junk room. 😂 😂 😂 . I actually just started it a few months ago and it's filled to the brim. But I started it to get everything organized and this way I don't repurchase anything I already have and we can start going through all the things in the junk room first. It's helped a lot. Saving tons of money and slowly this room will become empty.

sheiliz perez says:

I love your videos. You have honestly inspired me soo much! I actually have made minor swap outs already to become more eco-friendly.

Rebecca says:

Fjall Raven Kanken has backpacks made from recycled water bottles called Re-Kanken! They are more expensive than Jansport but they are amazing and last forever and come in a lot of colours!

Greg Robertson says:

This year I bought a re kanken bag which is made from recycled plastic bottles!

Emily Lasiter says:

Or try a metal mechanical pencil…

Deanna says:

My parents have junk rooms. They are almost hoarders because my dad can't throw anything away that has some sort of memory: good or bad, little or big. It drives me crazy. He tries to be "eco friendly" by reusing plastic tubes but then buys new plastic stuff. I don't get it

Marilee Getgen says:

A quick search online brings up all-metal mechanical pencils. You can skip the plastic AND save some trees 🤓

OhSnapItsCass07 says:

you're gorgeous 😍

Stormey Roth says:

Nope, I don't have a junk room, but I have junk…. Everywhere.

JJ P says:

If you want to reconciliate recycled material and very long-lasting backpacks, Re-Kankens are pretty cools for that. They're made from plastic bottles I think ? It's a really thick fabric and there's cool colors. I really love mine ! Also, Eastpacks, they look kinda the same as Jansport I think, I used the same two ones from the last year of primary school until the end high school and they still aren't broken or really worn out ! I just changed cause I needed a poach for my laptop in college, but if it wasn't the case I would still be using them

Donna Dennison says:

I am a teacher and spend way too much on school supplies because I am often supply most of my students with supplies. I absolutely LOVE the highlighter pencil idea! Can't wait to find some of these!

Laura says:

You can buy completely metal mechanical pencils.

Erinn Sawyer says:

I've had the same jansport backpack for about 5 years. I dont see why people feel the need to buy a new one each year if your old one is perfectly useable and not destroyed

Kaitlin Benz says:

Also! Jansport has a lifetime warranty, so they will repair/replace your pack at any point.

Isabel Kleijberg says:

Love this video! I myself already invested in a Sigg bottle, The North Face backpack and stainless steel lunchboxes, each of which I can really recommend.
I do have a junk room, or rather part of a room, which I am planning to clean out entirely. Most of it is either garbage, old school notebooks and files, art projects I've given up on, stuff from my childhood, etc. Most of it can probably go to the thrift store

rebekah fuller says:

Ive been really interested in getting a fountain pen but i have mountains of pens from previous years i have to go through 😭😭

Mellissa says:

I have never heard of a junk room. We don't even have a junk drawer. 😂 My husband does collect pens from the pharmacy and bank though. And even once in awhile I go through and donate them. I cannot seem to get him to stop picking them up though. Ugh!

OutsiderSpy says:

Because of my major we need to purchase specific weather-proof notebooks. Luckily the brand we use, Rite In The Rain, designs their notebooks to have a low environmental impact and for them to be recyclable. I'm glad they made us buy these because if not I'd be stuck with buying the regular non recycled notebooks without knowing

Nolan Hav says:

I have a junk drawer but not a whole room 😂 and the "junk" is stuff I use just not on a daily basis

Gavin perez says:

I bought my backpack for this year from a company called Matt and Nat, they are a vegan, 100& recycled bag company, made from recycled plastic and woven to be sturdy and represent vegan leather, the only downfall would be the price, they run upwards of $100

Hannah Eva says:

You can actually refill STABILO HIGHLIGHTERs🌈 In our local craftstore they sell these little tubes and you just can push them into the highlighter. I saved so much plastic and money with this💖

White Cat says:

There is highlighter ink for refillable pens and for fountain pens which you can get with wide end so it works same as a plastic highlighter.

Cynthia Wilson says:

the metal on notebooks tears up the machines. you can go for them if you are an artist and plan on making really cool art out of it though

Chloe Aebersold says:

We have a junk drawer not a room! We keep office supplies, flea medication for the pups, other various craft things, and hair ties/bobby pins/etc

xxLilRed56xx says:

Are the pens that are made from recyclable water bottles (the ones you can find in Walmart of Walgreens) eco friendly or no ?????

Heather M says:

Hey, Shelbi. I don't know if you know about this or not, but Crayola has a recycling program for used up/dried out markers. And they accept any brand, not just their own. Thought you might like to check it out, and it seemed relevant to your video topic here.

InkImpa says:

How to fix up old dried up highlighters:

Cut off part of the nasty highlighter bib
Take a pair of pliers
Remove the white cover on the butt of the highlighter
Add 1tsp of rubbing alcohol to the dried nib
Put back on the white highlighter butt

Nova says:

I do online school so I don't need to create any waste because it's all online!!! The ultimate zero waste school situation
