Public Supply

Writing materials with a social mission to foster creative learning in underfunded schools

As of late, shrinking budgets and an insistence on standardized testing has left many art programs at public schools underfunded. Operating on the onus that creativity is key in the academic and personal development of youngsters, Brooklyn-based Public Supply—producer of design-driven, high quality, made in America writing products—donates a portion of their proceeds toward underfunded art departments in public schools. Public Supply's limited edition, classic yet stylish notebooks and pencils are sustainably sourced and built for heavy use. With each package shipped, Public Supply includes a tracking code that links each product sold to a classroom. Having already funded a few creative classrooms throughout the city—while selling out of several products—Public Supply is a promising new venture both for the classic, high quality products they are producing and the impact they are having on young lives.

Public Supply notebooks start at $12 but the three pack is a deal for $32, plus you can share with your friends. Get involved through Public Supply's online store.
