Reduce, reuse, re-crayon? Credit: Eco Stars

The National Crayon Recycle Program has kept 53,000 pounds of castoff crayons from ending up in landfills. Those stubs, collected from schools and kids across the country, are then turned into brand new crayons ready for use by budding artists. Many recycled crayons are conglomerates of multiple colors and yield funky rainbow swirls when applied to paper, but for the purist child who believes the sky should be blue and the grass should be green, Eco Stars are where its at.

Available for $8 for 20 crayons at
