    I try to keep my business local. I go to the nearest independent art supply store and ask the friendly staff what they sell that is considered Eco friendly. By their very nature, the chain store and online giants you mention are rarely Eco friendly or supportive of the local economies where we live. Shop local and support your communities.

    You forgot this one:
    Recycled paper and chipboard items, recycled glass beads and glitter, eco-friendly paints and inks.
    Mostly for adults, too, which puts it a the top of my list.
