We can melt down crayons, recycle scraps into collages, and reconstitute paints, but what the heck do we do with dried out markers? Sure, we can get the very last bit of ink out by dipping the markers in water, but no matter what, we are left with a plastic remnant that has little value as an art material, yet another piece of trash…but wait!
