If you’ve ever wondered where the used crayons from schools and restaurants go, it’s the trash can. Odds are, they’ve got a few dents on them, but are otherwise in great shape. It’s a shame to see them go to waste when recycling is such a big movement now. That’s why San Fransisco creator, Bryan Ware, created his new company, The Crayon Initiative. This is a company that takes the old thrown out crayons nad forms brand new ones which are donated to hospitals. By separating the crayons into their own colors, he melts the crayons down and pours them into custom molds where they cool and are brand new crayons. These ones are thicker and easier for tiny hands to grasp. They are delivered to the hospitals so that sick children can find an escape within their own colorful world for a while. From waste to wonder, it’s a beautiful notion.
