What happens to used printer cartridges at work?

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

The Shorewood T-Bird Crew wants citizens of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to “Just Ask” at work: “What do we do with used printer cartridges?”

Since 2008, The Shorewood T-Bird Crew has raised money and rewards by recycling empty laser and inkjet cartridges, used cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, and digital cameras through Funding Factory’s fundraising thru recycling program.

In an effort to expand their recycling fundraiser, The Shorewood T-Bird Crew is prompting local individuals to go to Funding Factory and pledge to “Just Ask” their employers: “What do we do with used inkjet and laser cartridges?”

If these companies are not already recycling empty cartridges, they can register at Funding Factoryto Support a School or Nonprofit with the value of their recyclables.

When they pledge to “Just Ask,” those individuals are entered for a chance to win a Walt Disney World Vacation for four and $500 for The Shorewood T-Bird Crew.

“We’re proud to offer a simple way to start the conversation about our Business Support Program. Often, just asking about cartridge recycling reveals these valuable items are simply discarded. We offer a green solution that benefits everyone,” said Funding Factory President Sean Michaels.

Free to participate, Funding Factory Business Supporters receive display and collection materials and can either collect and ship their recyclables themselves or drop off their recyclables at Shorewood High School

“With the support of a community behind The Shorewood T-Bird Crew, there is no limit to the amount of money they can raise or the impact they can have on the environment,” Michaels added.

Make a pledge to “Just Ask” at FundingFactory, When prompted, enter The Shorewood T-Bird Crew’s organization ID# 127701 to show your support for their fundraising program. To learn more about the Just Ask campaign or supporting The Shorewood T-Bird Crew, contact Veronica Cook, 206-393-4372.
