Recycling unwanted crayons into unlimited possibilities

SHIPPENSBURG- The Crayon Initiative is a non-profit organization that takes unwanted crayons, remanufactures them, and provides them to hospitals, schools and art programs that are caring for kids.

The Crayon Initiative believes that in order to grow and learn, children need to have the freedom to be creative and express themselves through art.

The Crayon Initiative supports environmental efforts by diverting crayons from the landfills.  By collecting unwanted crayons from restaurants, schools, as well as other locations, and recycling them into new ones, The Crayon Initiative is doing their part to prevent crayons from depositing in the landfill.

Circle K started this initiative on campus so they could help children in need.

Shippensburg University has boxes planted all over campus for students and faculty to drop crayons off and contribute to this initiative.
