Woodward Earth Service Club members Erin Thackray and Bella Rana prepare the first box of markers to be sent off to Crayola’s ColorCycle program.

The program reduces the amount of plastic entering landfills, while recycling the plastic into a cleaner, lower-in-sulphur fuel. The Bainbridge High School Earth Service Corps has already sent in 1,270 markers, and each school on Bainbridge currently has a staff member signed up to collect markers.

The Curious Child has offered to collect used markers from the public at their store, located at 1050 Hildebrand Lane.
