  • What's For Lunch?

    SandwichWillpower is HARD. It’s been said that one wakes up each morning with a certain amount of discipline, but as the day wears on, that discipline starts to wear off. Sure, we can start our day off with a nourishing breakfast, but we can’t forget about lunch. With just a little planning, you can have a beautiful and nourishing meal ready and waiting, giving you the willpower to resist the cookies that your coworker INSISTS on bringing into the office, or keep you from heading into a fast food drive thru.

  • Popular Supply

    I was raised in a tiny Texas town where my parents had run the area’s general store, Popular Supply. It was a labor of love and I grew up surrounded by stories of the store and the trials of running it. Long after retirement, my parents still held onto some inventory. In fact, although my parents have passed, I still have some of the inventory today. And the store, long since sold, is still standing—a lasting legacy of my parents’ hard work and devotion.

    So, yes, “Supply” makes perfect sense. How strange to have found myself accidentally inheriting this name through a business transaction when it belonged to me all along. It is a powerful feeling to realize the meaning of “Supply” within our family and then apply that to the meaning I hope it will eventually evoke: a reliable, convenient, affordable supply of eco knowledge and goods to the world.

    As I listened to the speech I alluded to at the beginning, I pondered the true power of this name. It is a true embodiment of who we are as a company—our mission, our aspirations, our potential. And it embodies our past, both my family’s and that of Green Apple School Supply, and I can only hope that Green Apple Supply will become my legacy, as Popular Supply was my parents’—still standing long after my demise, and inspiring someone else to embrace their own potential.

    And as I proceed to introduce myself and my company, I hope that you will respond in kind. We want to get to know you and your stories. We have a lot to say, but we also have a lot to learn! Please email your stories to me at steph@greenapplesupply.org. The most inspirational stories will be posted here as guest blogs.
