Reusing Crayons!

Mom Finds Brilliant Way To Reuse Leftover Crayons From Restaurants & Schools

100,000 pounds of crayons go to landfills yearly!

If you did not know I REUSE old crayons. I handcraft beautiful square block crayons called Colour Blocks®.

Over the course of many years teaching art and as an recycle artist, I collected thousands of pounds of previously loved crayons from friends, families, schools and restaurants.

REUSE, RECYCLE & FUN ART!

Not having the heart to throw them into the landfills I researched all about crayons. I learned how they are made and what they are made from. I learned some crazy facts about how long it takes for them to biodegrade. I learned paraffin crayons can take up to five, ten and even 35 years to naturally biodegrade into our eco system only in the right conditions!

I also learned how many were going straight to the landfills yearly!

I then started experimenting with reusing crayons. The first Colour Block crayons were made and sold at a local farmers market in 2008.

My efforts and recycling movement become a business called Colour Blocks®.
