For $5, today's earth-friendly side deal gets you a 10-pound service pass for new and used art and school supplies (valued at $1 per pound) at St. Louis Teachers' Recycle Center. Students and teachers alike can nab pencils, pens, markers, fabric, paper, cardboard, ribbons, glitter, a sheaf of gold stars, and pretty much any other school supplies they might need. The Center charges according to the weight of your pillage, so when you arrive at either its Crestwood Court or Chesterfield Mall locations, you'll trade your Groupon for a service pass worth 10 pounds of any goods your Crayola-colored heart desires. Your Groupon must be redeemed in one visit.
Opening hours are a little funky: both locations are open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, but alternate Tuesday evenings (2 p.m.–6 p.m.). On the first and third Tuesday of the month, stop by the Crestwood Court locale. On the second and fourth, head to the Chesterfield Mall instead. Load up on back-to-school supplies, back-to-school teaching materials, and back-to-school VHS copies of Back to School with today's side deal.
