Interesting fact of the day

Crayons are a petroleum product, they take years to biodegrade.
MORE THAN 12 MILLION CRAYONS ARE MANUFACTURED EACH DAY!!!
Just think for a moment, "How many dumpsters does that fill?"

Here is an interesting way to "GO GREEN".........

This recycling education, community service program has made it possible to stop more than 43,000 pounds of unwanted crayons from going into landfills with the help from school and organization educators and kids across this country. Thank you for your efforts to help the Earth.
National CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM

The CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM takes old, rejected, broken crayons to a better place, where they’ll be recycled into fresh, new crayons!
The program has been a national success!
The CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM does not add or take away anything from the original crayon.
We employ people with developmental disabilities, working on a possitive impact through community service, environmental education and art.
All CRAZY CRAYON purchases benefit the CRAYON RECYCLE PROGRAM.

Spread the word! Many people don’t know this program exists. Tons of crayons are thrown away without a second thought.
