The drawing will close by Monday August 9th.. so make sure you leave a comment to win!!!!

Crayola is getting greener this back-to-school season and it’s not by creating a new color to join shades like screamin’ green and granny smith apple!

By using solar power, reducing waste and protecting the rainforest, Crayola is doing its part to ensure that the inspired kids of today grow up to inspire a healthier world.

As part of Crayola’s ever-evolving green initiative, this back-to-school season, Crayola is making crayons with solar power, markers from recycled bottle caps and colored pencils from reforested wood.

Crayola crayons, markers and colored pencils getting greener is extra good news for parents. You can feel even better about Crayola products because you are supporting a brand that cares very much about kids and the environment and you’ll still get the same great quality and colors at the same price! So while sometimes environmentally-friendly products cost families more green, not so with Crayola!

You might have noticed while you were doing your back-to-school shopping that packages of Crayola crayons, markers and colored pencils have special icons calling out the way each product is lessening its impact on the environment. These affordable and “green” back-to-school essentials include:
Crayola Markers - Thanks to new, innovative ways to manufacture Crayola markers from recycled bottle caps, “black” is the new “green!” Crayola markers will now have black barrels instead of white, which allows for more recycled plastic to be used and gives a second life to more than 1 million pounds of plastic bottle caps. Plus, switching to black barrels keeps hundreds of tons of plastic out of landfills each year. Available in 10-ct. Broadline Classic Colors, 10-ct. Broadline Assorted Colors, 10-ct. Fineline Classic Colors, 8-ct. Washable Broadline and 8-ct. Washable Fineline.

Crayola Green 24-ct. Crayons - The quintessential school supply found in virtually every elementary classroom will be made with the power of the sun. More than 26,200 solar panels will convert sunlight into electricity, generating the energy required to make 1 billion of the 3 billion crayons Crayola makes each year, which equals 60 million 24-ct. boxes. Mother Earth will be smiling down on every forest green, pine green and jungle green crayon that rolls off the assembly line!

Crayola Green Colored Pencils - Committed to protecting the rain forests since 1987, all Crayola colored pencils have been made from reforested wood instead of wood sourced from tropical rainforest or endangered species. For every tree used, a new tree of the same species is planted. The 12-, 24-, 36-, and 50-ct. boxes of Crayola Colored Pencils will be among the first to carry the “Eco-Evolution” callout on their packaging.

Hi Dora!

My daughter has been raised with the knowledge of what is supposed to be thrown away and what is to be recycled. She has even gotten to the point where she picks up the ground if we are on a walk or in the park. She doesn't understand how people can just throw garbage on the ground instead of the cans. For 11, she's a pretty smart kid. She has even taught me about things that can be reused instead of thrown out. She says she doesn't want to have too much garbage when she gets bigger. lol.

my son recognizes the "recylce" symbol and is always asking if plastic bottles can be recycled. Just yesterday, we recycled our old broken crayons by peeling off the paper and melting them down into new round multi-colored crayons! the kids loved it!

I would use the Bible to teach the kids about taking care of our world that God created. Although I am not big on "green" things, I do think that we need to take care of what He created.

I teach my daughter about protecting the environment by showing her how we can recycle, reduce our waste and re-use items that might otherwise go in the trash. She knows about how I buy/sell at consignment events, get rid of stuff through Freecycle, etc.

Thanks for the opportunity to win these!

I would love to win this for my boys. I have taught my oldest all about recycling things we no longer use, not only cans and such but also toys we no longer play with and clothes that no longer fit. I've also taught him about turning off lights to conserve energy and not letting the water run when we're not using it.
