Re-Colour is an innovative solution to reduce waste, provide art supplies to children, and teach the next generation ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
The Enactus University of Saskatchewan team is partnered with Montana’s to collect crayons that would be otherwise discarded. Between our partnership and household donations, we have diverted 10,000 crayons from landfills and created Re-Colour kits, including new upcycled crayons with fun shapes like dinosaurs, hearts, and more. Recently, the Re-Colour crayon kits have hit the shelves of a local retail store, The Better Good, in Saskatoon, SK.
As a non-profit organization, any proceeds are reinvested in the project to donate more Re-Colour kits to inner city schools, daycares, and women and children crisis shelters in Saskatoon. While donating the kits we educate the youth and the general public on the importance of environmental intervention - to protect the earth we all inhabit!
Since the projects inception, we have...
Invested 283 hours from 21 members
Donated personal crayon kits to 3 classes and
1 crisis shelter
108 lbs of plastic waste diverted from landfills
Created over 1430 repurposed crayons
This project in partnership with the national restaurant chain, Montana's.
