This last weekend we went out to eat and it was a welcomed treat. No cooking or cleaning up for mom. The children got place mats and crayons and not so quietly scribbled and quibbled over who got what color.After dinner we left and the crayons stayed. What happened to the crayons? They most likely got pitched and for crayons made of paraffin wax they will sit in the landfills for years and years. Over 2 millions crayons are sold every single year but how many of these crayons are recycled and reused? Hmmm? I know my family personally recycles the crayons but what about most families, childcare centers, restaurants, etc?
The Crayon Bin is the answer folks! They recycle your crayons and you don’t even have to peal the paper off.They use the crayon paper to make camp fire starters. Recycle and reuse! Send them 100 crayons and they’ll send you a new box of recycled crayons. The Crayon Bin is a company dedicated to keeping crayons out of landfills and you can help. Start a crayon bin at your local grocery store, recycling center, daycare, school, etc.What a great way for schools to get recycled crayons and do something good for the environment. When I was reading about this company I was so happy to have stumbled upon them because they also use the tips of crayons to make crayons for who have difficulty with fine motor skills. How great is that?
Most people don’t even think about a tiny crayon when they toss it. It’s tiny in comparison to most waste and takes up such a small amount of space in the trash. Put 2 million crayons together and that small space is suddenly not so small! Keeping millions of crayons out of the landfills makes sense and it’s a cinch with The Crayon Bin. Check it out and start one near you.
