It's back to school time which means it's time to head back to school shopping! It can be hard to keep with the latest trends but have no fear, we are here to help you out.

Fashion experts say that camo is officially back in this season.  Army backpacks and accessories are flying off of the shelves. Also, graphic designs that include everything from food products to animals have been popular as well.

As far as school supplies go, there are always a ton of options to choose from. Binders, folders and even staplers are available with kid's favorite characters such as The Avengers and the Frozen cast. Bright and even metallic school supplies are also making a comeback in everything from pencils to notebooks. 

For the more decorative, there are a ton of fun products on the market to help decorate your locker. Stores are selling everything from Emoji whiteboards to locker fur rugs to even lights to string to brighten up where you keep your books!

Also, just because all of the paper you're buying is white doesn't mean it can't be green as well! Eco-friendly products are also available.  One hundred percent recycled paper and notebooks are available and even in fun animal print patterns! Beyond the  classroom supplies you can even purchase green lunchboxes, BPA food containers and sports bottles.  Some products will even make a small contribution to an environmental group.

Happy shopping!
