>Crayola’s going GREEN!! Not just the color, but in action!! I’m so excited about this. Crayola is by far my favorite art supply company. We love Crayola.
As part of Crayola’s ever-evolvinggreen initiative, this back-to-school season, Crayola is making crayons with solar power, markers from recycled bottle caps and colored pencils from reforested wood.
Crayola Green 24-ct. Crayons - The quintessential school supply found in virtually every elementary classroom will be made with the power of the sun. More than 26,200 solar panels will convert sunlight into electricity, generating the energy required to make 1 billion of the 3 billion crayons Crayola makes each year, which equals 60 million 24-ct. boxes. Mother Earth will be smiling down on every forest green, pine green and jungle green crayon that rolls off the assembly line!
As for the function of the GREEN Crayola products? Two thumbs up from the Bargain family. Really. It’s the same Crayola we love on the inside, with only the outside and how the outside came to be that’s changed. Good, quality, safe products. They just have a little more green now.
Here’s a short video so you can see just what Crayola means when they say they are changing how their products are manufactured and packaged:
Cool, don’t you think? Am I the only one who is this excited? Well, aside from me and my kids? They noticed something different with the boxes. Busy asked all kinds questions.
