Back "Pack" to School with Green Supplies Giveaway

Welcome to the
Back "Pack" To School With Green Supplies Giveaway Event hosted by Mama to 4 Blessings. Special thank you to
Green Apple Supply for sponsoring this
fantastic giveaway!

As parents:
Stephanie and Robert Tobor, founders of Green Green Apple Supply want the best for our kids. And as
global citizens, they were faced with the responsibility to care for our planet, and each
other. They began as an endeavor to feed our family natural, organic foods has grown
into a much larger enterprise. Learning about potential dangers to children, and
the planet, in cleaning supplies, household goods, office supplies…everywhere. The
worsening state of our environment, climate change, and increasing levels of toxins
showing up in children’s blood work combined to create a great passion for exposing
our family to only the cleanest, most wholesome products.  When they had
inquired as to why individuals were choosing traditional products rather than opting for
eco-friendly versions, typically given one of two answers:

1. Green products
are too expensive.
2. There are too many choices, and some are not effective.</ span>

This was the
beginning of Green Apple Supply! By utilizing economies of scale, wholesale purchasing
power, and personal product experience, their endeavor to make it easier for anyone to
purchase Earth-friendly products. Keeping overhead low and this is a non-profit effort.
Products are sold as close to cost as we can, while still keeping the lights on. Why?
Because we think it’s the right thing to do.

me to give one reader a backpack filled with green supplies to start their back to
