The Easy Way to Get Your Kids to Say, ‘Bring On Back-To-School!’

Last Update: July 20, 2023

It’s been two glorious months of pool-splashing, popsicle-eating fun in the sun. But in few short weeks, kids will be lining up at the bus stop and saying goodbye to summer.

And let’s face it—for most kids, transitioning back to school is bittersweet. Sure, they’re excited to reunite with their buddies in a storm of high-fives, but they may also be mourning the loss of their pool noodles and endless playtime.

But you can you send your kids skipping their way to the bus stop by arming them with the coolest back to school supplies. Thrive Market’s new eco-friendly backpacks, lunchboxes, water bottles, notebooks, and folders will make your kid a standout, and give them the confidence to navigate the new classrooms and teachers. Super cute lunchbox: check. Awesome backpack: check. And for your own peace of mind, BPA-free and phthalate-free containers: check.

And, because sitting at a desk for hours is a stark contrast to all the running around they did on beaches and hiking trails all summer, it’s important to pack their lunches with nutritious goodies. Their snack game will be so on point, their friends will be asking for tradesies (to which your kid will say, “No way,” obviously).
