Why I started recycling Crayons

If you did not know I recycle crayons!

I make beautiful handcrafted Colour Blocks™ stackable square block crayons.

Over the course of many years teaching art, home-schooling, I collected pounds and pounds of previously loved crayons.

Friends, family, students and teachers passed me their old crayons. Not having the heart to throw them into the landfills I researched all about crayons.

I learned all about how crayons were made and what they were made from.

I learned some interesting facts about how long it took for them to biodegrade.

I then started experimenting with recycling old crayons. The first Colour Blocks were made and sold at a local street market bazaar in 2008.

My efforts and movement to recycle crayons became a business called Colour Blocks™.

Environmental Problem with Crayons Today!

crayon recycle

Traditional crayons are sticks of paraffin wax  that is similar to candles we burn in our home.

Paraffin wax and colored pigments are sometimes by-products combined to making crayon products.

Paraffin wax is crude oil fuel.

A limited resource we all know about…..right? 

Paraffin crayons can take up to five, ten and even 25 years to naturally biodegrade into our eco system only in the right conditions.

Crude oil can be biodegradable given the right conditions and environment.

Decomposing crayons back into our eco system in the landfills can be a very slow process.

Some crayons mixed with by-products can cause low-carbon pollution.

The average family confesses they just throw old crayons away when they break and buy new fresh ones yearly!
