About The National Crayon Recycle Program
The National Crayon Recycle Program recycles unwanted, rejected, broken crayons into new crayons, keeping thousands of pounds out of landfills and back into the creative hands of children!
Recycling crayons inspires children to be good stewards of the Earth and its resources.
There are so many lessons to be learned from a crayon drive and fund-raising event. The experiences provided can prove to be invaluable throughout their life, including:
Earth conscious decision making
Communication with leadership and authority figures
Collaboration with others
Encouragement to share ideas
Goal setting and achievement
Marketing strategies and design
Importance of art and creativity
