Have a bunch of old broken crayons at home?

Through July 27th, A.C. Moore is partnering with The Crayon Initiative to recycle all your broken crayons and provide brand new crayons to children’s hospitals all over the country! So awesome!

The Crayon Initiative recycles used, broken and unwanted crayons into new ones, and provides them to children’s hospitals throughout the country. These unique crayon packs are used by child life specialists to spark creativity and imagination for hospitalized children. One pound of unwanted crayons are recycled into 5 new packs!

    This reminds me of the Crayola Colorcycle program, where schools can collect dried out markers and send them back to Crayola to be recycled, instead of thrown in landfills. I’m the coordinator for my school. Very easy. https://www.crayola.com/colorcycle.aspx
