Thanks to the tireless work of our South Bay, Los Angeles chapter, 1500 crayons that could have landed in the trash have instead made their first voyage to Haiti, where they found a great home at the Chances for Children orphanage. A second shipment will be arriving there next month.
Did you know!?
More than 12 Million Crayons are made in the US, EVERY DAY! 12 Million Crayons equals about 120,000 pounds. That's 60 Tons of Crayons made EVERY DAY with petroleum based wax that eventually ends up in our landfills when they don't have to!
We also accept new crayons!
If you own or work at a restaurant or business that is unable to salvage crayons left behind by customers, we would be thrilled to accept any new crayons you are willing to donate. Please contact us to make arrangements. Thanks!
