Crayola and schools across North America are banding together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. That’s why we launched Crayola ColorCycle. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and re-purpose used Crayola markers.

ColorCycle is also a great opportunity for teachers and their students to explore eco-friendly practices!

At this time, the Crayola ColorCycle program is testing in select areas in Canada. For a list of eligible Canadian postal codes, click here.
