I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
I recently found out about a crayon recycling program called Crazy Crayons.
How many broken crayons have I tossed into the trash?
Hundreds? At least.
This program takes old and broken crayons, with the wrappers still on, and recycles them into mixed-color crazy crayons.
One woman, LuAnn Foty, is to thank for developing this program and "saving over 34,000 lbs of unwanted crayons" according to the website. And, buying Crazy Crayons helps the program continue, and make great gifts!
Lil Green tip: shipping one large box uses less material and will cost less than shipping lots of smaller boxes.
Ship crayons to:

I'm already thinking this would make a great school, scouting, or family recycling project. It's easy. It's little. But it will make a big difference.
