Back to School!

August brings with it hot sunny weather, sweet summer memories, and of course, back to school shopping. You might be in the midst of buying crayons, glue, notebooks, textbooks, or even a mini fridge or microwave as you prepare for your student to return to school. Whether you’re in the crayons and paper stage or you’re sending your student off to college, Re:new is the perfect place to pick up something special for your student! Here are some great ideas as the back to school season approaches:

Color makes a simple project that much more enjoyable! Stock your student’s backpack with our colorful Journals and Pencil Zips, so that they’re ready with supplies when inspiration strikes.

Your student’s laptop is vital to their success. It holds class projects, papers, appointment reminders, and memories, so make sure it’s protected in our Edison Sleeve!
