Bryan Ware has come up with a brilliant way to reuse leftover crayons that get thrown out by restaurants and schools…
He melts them down and recycles them into new crayons for children at hospitals!
He came up with the idea in 2011 when celebrating his birthday at a restaurant. His waiter had brought his two sons some crayons, and he wondered where the crayons go after they’re done with them. His discovery that they get thrown out led to the Crayon Initiative, which delivers crayons to hospitals throughout California.
Every year, up to 75,000 pounds of crayons get thrown away by restaurants and schools
First he melts the crayons down…
He then pours them into special custom molds
He can make up to 96 new crayons each time he does this
