Back 2 School blog hop day 3- O'Bon review and giveaway ends 8-22

OK day 3's giveaway and review is from one of my favorite school supplies stores. I love their products. I did a review for them last year for my back to school event and since then I have used their products since. Well who is it you want to know well O'Bon of course.
O'Bon has a majority of all the necessities your kids, teenagers, or college kids will need. Well actually you don't need to even be in school to use their products me and my hubby uses them daily as well. My all time favorite product of theirs is their Pencils. I know your thinking a pencil is just a pencil whoopidy doo but until you use and see theirs you don't know there is a difference. Honest there is. One is they use recycled newspaper to make their pencils. So not only are you saving the earth but they sharpen so much easier and smoother. Best of all do hate spending your time sharpening your pencils to get it almost sharpened and the stupid lead breaks and you have to start all over again? Well I guaranteed this will not happen with O'Bon pencils. I have been using them for over a year now and never once had that happen ever. So this alone helps you save the earth and your hard earned money. How well since the y are made of recycled paper and because the lead doesn't break like the other pencils the pencils last alot longer! The cheap pencils I buy last a couple days but my O'Bon pencils one pencil will last me month or more! This makes me happy.
OK so I guess enough drooling over the pencils ha ha. They do have other great stuff like colored pencils because if your like me I hate crayons and markers for the mess reasons and breaking reasons. I am strictly a colored pencil mom here. These are like the pencils and are awesome!!!! Bright bold colors. They color evenly and are perfect for my kids who color on a daily bases.
O'Bon also has some great art pencils which come in a set and the pencil leads are thicker or thinner depending on the number on the pencil. This is great for shading and stenciling. My oldest 3 love them. Even my hubby has a set for drawing and his graphic arts idea he comes up with. Best art pencils ever! They are like the pencils as well all made with recycled products.

So your wondering do they have anything other then pencil type products. Well don't worry they do! They have some adorable notebooks and like I said before all their products they sell are green products made with recycled items that includes the notebooks and binders and etc. The notebooks are great for homework books and writing books. They come in great natural styles with animals, rainforest's themes, bird themes, fruits, and etc. So colorful and fun! My three oldest all have O'Bon journal notebooks to put their friends numbers and addresses in them. They also have some they write all the school notes in as well.
My son uses the O'Bon feathers binder to hold all his Pokemon cards in with the sleeves. Its been thrown around sat on and more by my rough son and it is still holding up after a year. This is awesome. Now my daughters wants some for school and for their Bella Sara cards.
So if your looking for some great back to school products for you, your kids or someone else O'Bon is the place to go! They are green and great and help save you money. So whats better than that? Another things is with every purchase they plant a tree. So that means you are using recycled products to help plus you are making more trees. That's cool! So head over and get your school stuff now!
We are giving away a nice O'Bon Prize bundle of some of their great products! Yay!

O'BON was founded on the simple idea that basic products, such as pencils and notebooks, could be made much more responsibly, and contribute to making the world a better place.

chlorinebrain said...

I learned that this year, they started a new project that they are extremely passionate about. The O'BON School Program, gives them a close relationship with a growing number of schools and a platform to educate kids about the environment, recycling and deforestation. It's also a great way for kids to use O'BON in fundraising for the clubs they love and to exchange outdated wood pencils for brand new, recycled ones.
