Crayola Color Cycle
Inspired by the group that had repurposed old crayons in the previous session, these two 4th-graders decided to collect old, dried-out markers from teachers in the school and recycle them through the Crayola ColorCycle program, a program in which schools can ship their old Crayola markers back to be recycled, instead of just throwing them away. They sent out fliers to all of the teachers asking for used-up markers, and the response was way more than they had expected! They ended up boxing up over 650 old markers that would have otherwise been thrown in the trash, and shipped them all back to Crayola to be recycled! And of course, then they sent sweet thank-you notes to all of the teachers who had donated their old markers.
