He Melted Crayons On The Stove, What He Created… This Is So Awesome.

A Story of Second Chances

Over 500,000 pounds of broken crayons are thrown away every year, and they're usually not biodegradable. Through the Crayon Initiative, old crayons are recycled and enjoyed more fully. This process is also much better for the environment.

A Colorful Gift

The Crayon Initiative has donated over 2,000 boxes to both hospitals and schools across California, and they're continuing to expand.

Creative, Happy Kids
