Every so often, I muster up the nerve collect all the cheap slinkies my kids got as birthday party favors, novelty rings, and bits of plastic that chipped off its host-toy, and throw it all away. It kills me a little inside to throw things directly into the trash. I love purging. I hate the thought of landfills piling up with garbage I created.
Hopewell Elementary, where DaughterOne goes to Kindergarten, is partnering with Crayola in a program called “Color Cycle” where we can bring all our used markers — any type (dry erase, sharpie, dollar store brand) — and the markers are converted into fuel.
Three cheers for the art teacher! And bring on down your dried out markers.
