In 1900, prior to the introduction of Crayola Crayons, we produced black marking crayons. These crayons were created with dry carbon black and different waxes. Today these are known as Staonal brand Marking Crayons and are used in many industrial settings.
The first box of Crayola Crayons was produced in 1903 as an 8‑count box. It sold for a nickel and contained the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. Click here to view the History of Crayola Timeline.
While the marker barrel and cap are recyclable, not all parts of the marker are. Because the marker components are securely sealed during the manufacturing process, we don’t recommend trying to remove the marker nib and reservoir. The marker caps can be recycled at facilities that accept #5 plastic.
Crayola offers an innovative program called ColorCycle that converts old markers into energy as well as wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles. The process repurposes the entire marker, regardless of the different kinds of plastics or how they are assembled. You can learn more about this program and all of Crayola’s other environmental initiatives at www.crayola.com/colorcycle.
