and Crazy Crayons
but neither one could exist
without kids that care about the Earth.
Your Unwanted Crayons
Crayons are a petroleum product that take many years to biodegrade.
MORE THAN 12 MILLION CRAYONS ARE MANUFACTURED EACH DAY!
Just think for a moment, “How many dumpsters does that fill?”
The National Crayon Recycle Program recycles unwanted, rejected, broken crayons into new crayons, keeping thousands of pounds out of the landfills and back into the creative hands of children!
You’ve Made a Difference
This “recycling” education, community service has made it possible to stop more than 120,000 pounds of unwanted crayons from going into landfills with the help from schools, organization educators and kids across this country.
Thank you for your efforts to help the Earth!
How To Recycle Your Crayons
Simple Crayon Prep
You don’t have to do anything to the crayons you’re donating!
Just collect (any amount), box, and ship them as they are – wrapped, broken or barely used – we recycle them all.
Please use sturdy boxes that closely fit the amount of the contents to avoid the box being crushed or broken.
We also appreciate your help covering the shipping expense for your donated crayons. The NATIONAL CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM could not exist without this added effort on your part.
The NATIONAL CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM does not receive any state, federal or private financial aid and exists solely because of caring people like you!
COST SAVING TIP:
USPS offers Priority Flat Rate boxes for a standard fee regardless of weight.

Close the Loop
The Purchase of Crazy Crayons supports Crayon Recycling and Recycling Education. Creating an Earth conscious impact and igniting creativity through the art of coloring, recycling, and sustainable living.
HELP THE EARTH & RAISE MONEY FOR YOUR CAUSE:
Consider starting a crayon drive at your school to collect old crayons, send them in to be recycled and sell the Crazy Crayon products as a fundraiser. This is a great way to teach the kids to “Close the Loop”. Crazy Crayons will provide wholesale pricing to your school and waive the $100 minimum purchase.
How to start your crayon drive
START IT. Provide a drop-off bin (a box works fine), put it in an easy to see location, and let everyone know it’s there. The kids can decorate the bin, place the bin on a scale, set a goal and graph their progress (great visuals).
The kids should think about where they see crayons going in the trash in their community such as: Restaurants, clinic waiting rooms, day cares, etc.
The CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM is all about “Recycling” education.

SHARE IT. Let your neighbors, schools, community center & local media know about this recycle program that “makes soooo much sense”.
The kids may get some media recognition for the great efforts they are making to help the Earth!
SHIP IT. Use sturdy boxes that closely fit the amount of the contents (as to avoid crushing or breakage of box). Crayons don’t need to be in plastic bags inside the box.
Please leave the wrappers on the crayons if they have them. It is very difficult to tell the black, purple and blue crayons apart without wrappers.
