Green Back to School Shopping with Crayola (Giveaway)

One Goodies for Mom reader will win a colorful, green prize back from Crayola and MyBlogSpark that includes:

  • Crayola Markers 
  • Crayola Crayons
  • Crayola Colored Pencils.
Since back to school shopping is upon us and an expensive fact of life, it makes it a little easier on us moms if we at least feel like we are being a little greener in the process.  Crayola is helping us do just that as we buy school supplies this fall. We can feel even better about Crayola products because we are supporting a brand that cares about kids and the environment, while still getting the same great quality and colors at the same price! Yes, you read that correctly for the SAME PRICE. So while some environmentally-friendly products cost more green, not so with Crayola! And they work the same as the ones we've known since we were kids.

According to the Crayola website, "Crayola may make virtually every color under the sun, but its current favorite is green. By using renewable energy, reducing waste and protecting the rainforests, Crayola's green initiative is helping to ensure that today's kids will have a healthy environment for their creative tomorrows."

But how are they doing this? As part of Crayola’s green initiative, this back-to-school season, Crayola is making crayons with solar power, markers from recycled bottle caps, and colored pencils from reforested wood.

The packaging of Crayola crayons, markers and colored pencils have special icons calling out the way each product is lessening its impact on the environment. These affordable and “green” back-to-school essentials include:


Crayola Markers
- New, innovative ways to manufacture Crayola markers from recycled bottle caps, “black” is the new “green!” Crayola markers will now have black barrels instead of white, which allows for more recycled plastic to be used and gives a second life to more than 1 million pounds of plastic bottle caps. Plus, switching to black barrels keeps hundreds of tons of plastic out of landfills each year.

Crayola Green 24-ct. Crayons - More than 26,200 solar panels will convert sunlight into electricity, generating the energy required to make 1 billion of the 3 billion crayons Crayola makes each year, which equals 60 million 24-ct. boxes.

Crayola Green Colored Pencils - All Crayola colored pencils have been made from reforested wood instead of wood sourced from tropical rainforest or endangered species. For every tree used, a new tree of the same species is planted.
