Did you know that crayons used in a restaurant by kids (or fun adults) are generally thrown away due to germs? And did you know that approximately 30 tons of crayons end up in a landfill each year?
So what did one dad do about this? He started recycling old germ-filled crayons, turning them into new ones for children in schools and hospitals who may not have access to these wondrous tools of the art trade.
Thus far, Bryan Ware has created over 800,000 crayons for kids in need. Pretty cool (and colorful!)!
