From The Crayon Initiative website:

“The wax from crayons is not biodegradable and will never break down, leaving a waxy sludge in our landfills for centuries to come. The Crayon Initiative supports environmental efforts by diverting crayons from the landfills.”

“Annually, between 45,000 and 75,000 pounds of broken crayons are discarded in landfills throughout the country. By collecting unwanted crayons from restaurants, schools, as well as other locations, and recycling them into new ones, The Crayon Initiative is doing our part to prevent crayons from depositing in the landfill." 

Here’s how you can help out by spreading the word or collecting crayons from schools and restaurants in your town.

There’s a Hawaii animal shelter that lets tourists adopt dogs for a day. Visitors to the Kauai Humane Society can ‘check out’ dogs wearing vests that say “Adopt Me” to give them exercise and social interaction and gain the interests of passersby. About 4 times a month, the tourists themselves go home with a new dog. Source Source 2
