I’m embarassed that I didn’t think of this before…
I perused more than my fair share of school supply lists this past month. (the 12 glue sticks required by Ankeny for Kindergarteners was a bit shocking.) I couldn’t help but notice all the disposable and/or toxic “supplies” on these lists.
Now, obviously, disposable tissues (not Kleenix, as noted on most lists, which is a brand name) are the way to go for classrooms. I get that.
But Clorox wipes? Hm. Not sure there.
So… parents of children who attend school. What do you do? Do you just buy the single-use, toxic-ingredient Clorox wipes? Do you buy something else? Abstain? File a complaint with the school?
What are those wipes even used for? Do our schools not provide adequate cleaning supplies these days?
