Why soy crayons? Unlike most crayons which are made from paraffin wax, a petroleum product, Earth Grown Crayons are made from soy, an all-natural, renewable resource that is one-hundred percent biodegradable making it an earth-friendly choice for kids. Soybeans have been a part of my life since I can remember. Growing up I spent time on my grandparents’ farm in rural Minnesota. I watched my grandpa plant and harvest soybeans in the fields behind his farm. Many years later I’m making my own creations from soy, inspired by all things natural and living on our beautiful planet.
Earth Grown Crayons are handmade by blending soy wax with non-toxic earth minerals and pigments which are safe for children. Only soy grown on American farms free of herbicides, pesticides, and genetically modified material is used.
My hope is that Earth Grown Crayons inspires a connection to all things living and lovely, like it does for me.
