August is National Crayon Collection Month
August is a time when kids are preparing to return to class. The rush is on to get school supplies, but not everyone can afford the required materials. This month’s observance, National Crayon Collection, is about aiding families to ensure all kids have crayons because color not only makes life happier, it makes it healthier. And there are multiple benefits to coloring for all ages!
A great part of this observance is the recycling. Crayons don’t decompose and with the crayon collection effect, it is possible to not only bring necessary materials to students, but to keep them out of landfills. Many restaurants have slightly used crayons that can be collected and repurposed. That is what this is all about.
