Did you know: Crayola and schools across North America are banding together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and re-purpose used Crayola markers.
What More: Crayola ColorCycle will accept all brands of plastic markers, not just Crayola markers. That includes dry erase markers and highlighters! ColorCycle will eliminate placing hundreds of tons of markers into landfills.
Who can participate: Any school, kindergarten through 12th grade in the contiguous 48 United States (excludes Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico) and some areas in Canada can participate.
*If you are not a teacher/school, or part of a school, you can contact your local school and if they are already participating, you can drop off your used markers there. If your local school is not participating, encourage them to do so by visiting www.crayola.com/colorcycle.
