Washington students collected 1,000 markers, highlighters and dry erase markers to send to Crayola as part of its Crayola ColorCycle Program!
Washington is partnering with Crayola and schools all across the country to help students to understand the importance of their role in helping to protect the environment. Through this program, students collect markers, highlights and dry erase markers and send them to Crayola so they can be re-purposed through the Crayola ColorCycle Program.
Crayola turns used markers into diesel fuel that is capable of being used in boilers, ships and even cars. The company makes up to 700 million markers a year and has partnered with New York clean energy company JBI to create the ColorCycle initiative.
