Crayola's New Green Art Supplies (Review & Giveaway)


    As part of Crayola’s ever-evolving green initiative, this upcoming back-to-school season special boxes of Crayola crayons, markers and colored pencils will feature icons calling out the ways each product is lessening its impact on the environment. Solar panels are starting to provide power to make more than 1 billion Crayola crayons annually and recycled bottle caps are being used to make 500 million Crayola markers, keeping hundreds of tons of plastic out of landfills. Additionally, since 1987, Crayola has made its colored pencils from reforested wood: for every tree that is used, a new one of the same species is planted. Crayola’s new greener school supplies will be available for this back-to-school season.
                           
 We were so excited upon hearing that our favorite art supply brand, Crayola, was doing their part to help protect the environment. We were even more excited when we got a chance to review the new Solar made crayon's & recycled markers! These are the same great products that my family ( going back generations now) has come to know and love. One of my favorite thing's to do when I was little was color, something my children now also love to do. When the marker's and crayon's arrived we opened them immediately and I ran off to get a roll of paper for the kids. I explained to my son ( as he is old enough to understand) that the crayon's that he was using were made using Solar energy, and the markers casing was made of recycled plastic (like the plastic bottles we recycle each week ). The only difference that you'll note is that the casing of the marker's is now black.
                                    
Same great product + helping the environment = 1 mom... happy to continue to purchase this wonderful line of art supplies! Be sure to look for the new Solar Crayons & Recycled Marker's / Colored pencils this coming  back to school season at a retailer near you or direct at http://www.crayola.com/

  1. Our favorite Crayola product is the washable markers...I wish it were crayons, but my son LOVES the markers. He tends to cover himself in ink by the time he's done, so I'm the one that loves the washable part :)
