    I have been reusing the washable markers bought for the grandkids. Dip tips in water regularly and cap. Goes a long way.

    I make Sharpies or other permanent markers last longer by soaking tip in rubbing alcohol. You may see tiny bubbles coming from the tip of the pen- that's air being displaced. It might right a lighter shade but it's still quite usable.

    Crayola will take all brands of markers. They even pay for the shipping. I started a program at the school I worked in. Go to It is so easy to collect markers in any elementary school in particular. Can you imagine how many markers are used by the kids in a school. If you don’t have children in a school, perhaps gather the information and drop it off with some old markers and if you can find one, a 5 gallon bucket works great for collecting. Crayola will provide signs and letters to go home to parents. Oh, now I see the comment right below mine. I did not mean to steal your idea, Kim M. My dad always said, “Great minds think alike.” (He probably stole that.)

    Crayola launched a new initiative called Colorcycle. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and repurpose used Crayola markers The schools can ship them via Fedex for free.
    Might be a great project for folks to ask their schools to consider participating in.
    Here is their website. .
