We specialise in recycling used ink cartridges. Our aim is to help schools raise funds and to encourage the next generation to get greener! We will collect your used printer cartridges and donate the money raised straight back to your school.
‘FREE Eco Gifts’ for your school!…
Along side raising school funds we also run an ‘Eco Project’ designed to get your pupils outside and learning about their local environment and wildlife. As well as every £1 you raise we give you an additional ‘Green Point’ these points can be redeemed for ‘Green Goodies’ for your school, such as bulbs, trees, butterfly boudoirs, bird houses, hedgehog houses, bug boxes, toad hides, vegetable / herb garden equipment, gardening tools, bird tables and feeders, bat boxes even sponsoring an endangered species of your choice and rain forest conservation projects too! There is so much to choose from!
And a little bit of extra help from us!…
Cartridges can be collected from anywhere, school, home, work, clubs, friends and family.
If parents would like to take a bin to work on behalf of your school we can supply a pack for them to do so. This is a great way of boosting the money raised. You could also ask local businesses to display a bin for you, do you have a local shop, bank or business that could help?
