Remember those horrendously long school supply lists calling for several boxes of crayons and a few boxes of markers? Well, it’s obvious where the crayons go as they’re used, they literally disappear, but if you’ve found yourself wondering what’s going to happen to all those dried out markers, wonder no more . . .


Did you know that Crayola will take ALL of the old dried out markers back?! And not only will they take their old dried out markers back, but they’ll actually take ANY Brand of dried out markers back!

Wait.. there’s More!

Not only will they take any dried out markers back, they’ll also PAY FOR SHIPPING TOO!


All you have to do is Ask your teachers or school administrators to create an account: Super Easy, Right?! What teacher doesn’t have dozens and dozens of dried markers to contend with each year…

To get Crayola ColorCycle started in your school, you’ll need to select someone to be the ColorCycle Champion. T

he ColorCycle Champion will organize the collection and shipment of markers to the conversion facility and spread the word about the program and its features. If that’s you, terrific!
