Slingerlands joins Crayola ColorCycle

Filed in Slingerlands by on December 21, 2018

Slingerlands Elementary is participating in Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills! All around the school, students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded.

The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles. 

Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included.

Drop-off boxes will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers.

Thank you in advance for participating!
