When it comes to making a difference, one small action can have a big impact. The Minden Chapter of the National Honor Society invites teachers, students, and community members to help save the planet one marker at a time with the Crayola ColorCycle program.
“We’ll collect used markers and send them to Crayola to be repurposed. They can be any brand or even highlighters or dry erase markers,” NHS member Emma Rutt said.
The Crayola ColorCycle program works with schools across North America in an effort to protect the environment by collecting and repurposing used markers. Not only does the program keep tons of expended markers from entering landfills, it turns them into useful products like wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as electricity.
