The Importance of Recycling Crayons

At Lambs Road Tudor Cathedral, we believe in the power of community and sustainability. That's why we are excited to share with you the Crayola ColorCycle program. Our community plays a vital role in fostering a greener future, and recycling is an essential component of that endeavor.

The Crayola ColorCycle Program

The Crayola ColorCycle program is an innovative initiative that aims to reduce waste and conserve resources by collecting used crayons and recycling them into new ones. This program not only helps protect the environment but also teaches our children the value of responsible consumption and the importance of taking care of our planet.

How Does the Crayola ColorCycle Program Work?

The ColorCycle program is straightforward and highly effective. Schools, organizations, and individuals collect used crayons and send them to Crayola for recycling. Crayola then processes these crayons, transforming them into fresh, high-quality ones that can be used again for coloring and creative activities. By participating in this program, we can reduce waste and create a more sustainable future for generations to come.

Crayola's Environmental Commitment

Crayola, a renowned leader in the art industry, has taken significant steps to minimize its environmental impact. They have implemented various sustainability practices, such as using solar energy, minimizing packaging waste, and actively supporting recycling initiatives like ColorCycle. Through these efforts, Crayola is setting an example for other companies and inspiring change in the way we approach consumption and waste management.
