Crayola ColorCycle

Mrs. Bormann's Third Grade Class has taken the lead on this exciting program. The Crayola ColorCycle program is devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills! The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013. They use the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food and power vehicles.

Please help support our efforts by sending used markers, even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included. A drop off box will be located in Room 7 for the students to deposit the markers!

Thank you Mrs. Bormann and her amazing class for taking the lead on such a special and worthwhile project.
