Bring your used Crayons to ALT @ Mound!

The Life of a Crayon

Have you ever wondered what happens to your unwanted crayons?

Sadly, more than a half-million pounds of crayons are discarded every year, turning into a waxy sludge that clogs our landfills. This motivated us to participate in a program that recycles used crayons and sends them to children’s hospitals across the U.S. Now here’s your chance to #ShareYourColors!!

Bring your unwanted old/used crayons to school and drop them into the collection boxes. We will send them to The Crayon Initiative company. They will then make NEW crayons that will be shipped to children's hospitals.
