Keeping Markers Out of Landfills

École Salisbury Morse Place School
March 06, 2020

Bulletin board showing how crayola markers are recycledUsed up markers are getting a second life thanks to Ms. Burnett's Grade 1/2 class at École Salisbury Morse Place School. The students are collecting them to be recycled by Crayola's Color Cycle program, which saves them from the landfill and turns them into shingles, asphalt, and even electricity. The class made this bulletin board display outside their class to explain the program. They've collected 150 markers so far, and hope to collect 1,000 by the end of the year. And now students from other classes are getting in on the action, too. Way to go, kids!
