Do you have used crayons you want to get rid of? Want to help the planet? Or even better yet, both?
Well, by donating your old and used color crayons to the Girl Scouts Troop 657, you can get rid of your old crayons while, at the same time, helping the environment by recycling. Your old, used color crayons can be melted down and turned into new crayons instead of filling up landfills.
