Great cartridge pen giveaway winners announced
Author: Zo Zhou
To celebrate National Recycling Week and to encourage schools to recycle as much as possible, Greenschools subcscribers were offered the chance to win one of 10 packs of 15 Enviroliner pens, made from recycled inkjet cartridges through the 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' program.
If the school didn't have a 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' collection box, they simply had to register as a collection point to be in to win. If the school was already one of the many registered 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' collection points, they simply returned a full bag of cartridges. Entries closed Friday 2 November 2012.
Planet Ark congratulates the following schools on winning the Great cartridge pen giveaway:
Edith Cowan University
Uni of WA
Heany Park Primary School
Reynella Primary School
St Raphael's School
'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' is an example of an effective producer responsibility program. The Participating Manufacturers - Brother, Canon, Epson, Kyocera, Konica Minolta and Lexmark - are taking responsibility for their cartridges by paying for the promotion of the program as well as the cost of collecting and recycling their cartridges. The Resource Recovery Partner, Close the Loop, achieves zero waste to landfill for all of their recycling processes.
