JFK Students Work to Repurpose Used Markers thumbnail131519
The student council at JFK recently coordinated a Crayola ColorCycle program, with students and teachers collecting used markers rather than sending them to landfills.

The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in North America since 2013, utilizing advanced plastic conversion technologies to create wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity for heating homes, cooking food and powering vehicles.
