Waldorf Chapter Welcomes Recycling Initiative


Mocha Moms, Inc., the national non-profit organization for mothers, has begun a project, which they hope will have an impact on not only the environment, but also the local schools it touches. For the next three months, the organization will collect crayons, under the umbrella of the Crayon Collection, and deliver them to local schools to reuse in the classrooms.

Per the Crayon Collection, “Billions of crayons are produced in the U.S. each year, and much of that ends up in our landfills. These petroleum-derived crayons can take years – even decades- to decompose. Meanwhile, U.S. teachers in underfunded public schools are spending an average of $750 of their own income per year on supplies for their classrooms.”

Well, Mocha Moms would like to help and has received generous donations from The All American Steakhouse, Bob Evans, and Ruby Tuesday. “I cannot tell you how many times my children dine in restaurants and use the crayons, only to have them thrown away. If they can be recycled, saving both money and landfill waste, then the Crayon Collection initiative is worth the effort,” says Marjorie Childs, President of the Waldorf Chapter.
