The Crayon Initiative collects crayons, remanufactures them, and provides them to hospitals to provide in-hospital entertainment and learning programs for sick children.



Here is how it works...

Participating Faber-Castell Retailers will host a "Crayon Challenge" event in their store between 

September 1 - October 31 for a fun filled day of coloring and creativity. 


Invite your family and friends to bring their crayons from home and take the Crayon Challenge, matching your crayons up against Faber-Castell Beeswax Crayons. You can recycle your old crayons and replace them by buying and trading up with a fresh set of the amazing Beeswax Crayons!


Your recycled crayons will be sent to The Crayon Initiative for a great cause.


We believe you will not be disappointed once you are able to see how much brighter and vibrant 

Faber-Castell Beeswax Crayons are compared to any other!


Inquire with your local toy retailer and encourage them to host a 

Faber-Castell Crayon Challenge Play Day today!
