June 9, 2006, Newsletter Issue #19: Need a Fundraiser? Think Ink & Ink Cartridge Recycling

Tip of the Week

If your school, youth group, or other organization is looking for a unique fundraising idea that almost any person or business could participate in, you should think about ink cartridge recycling. For a great, long-term fundraising program, these little pieces of plastic can be turned into gold. The materials used in ink cartridges can be harmful to the environment. Because of this, ink cartridge recycling is done by many companies, both state-sponsored and independent.

First, locate a company that can provide ink cartridge recycling for your group. Then, network your idea to as many businesses as possible. The more that they print, fax, and copy, the better. Collect each empty ink cartridge and sell it to your ink cartridge recycling company. You can easily keep track of donations and earnings. By the end of a school year, for example, your students could raise thousands of dollars for any cause through ink cartridge recycling.
