julsie on Refillable markers? http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/plastic-free-alternatives/refillable-markers/#p497 Plastic-free Alternatives http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/plastic-free-alternatives/refillable-markers/#p497 I got to try these out today:

(Not sure how to make that a real link.)  They're totally plastic, but you buy the ink separately and it wicks into the markers through the writing surface.  They feel sturdy enough to go through gallons of ink before you'd need new markers.  I'm not sure how often they need re-inking, and the process isn't very kid-friendly.  They're smaller than a crayola marker -- closer to crayon size.  Worth a look if you find yourself throwing away a lot of plastic markers.
