Imagine your neighborhood treeless! Imagine a school playground paved over with asphalt and no spot of shade for a child to rest under! Although the first notion may be exaggerated, the second isn’t. Many of the schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District are virtually treeless. In collaboration with Planet Green and TreePeople I created a solution that you can put into action today!
By recycling inkjet cartridges you can earn cash and a sponsored tree planting at your school! Start recycling your cartridges today and let’s crack the playground asphalt. Not only will you be keeping harmful inks from entering our water supply and plastics out of landfills, but you’ll be improving the splendor and wellbeing of our schools and communities. According to Recharger Magazine, “Every year, more than 300 million plastic printer cartridges end up dumped in landfills in the United States and around the world - almost eight cartridges are thrown away in the United States every second.”
Whether you’re a parent, teacher or community member you can actively participate in this opportunity. Simply pick up the phone and call your local Los Angeles Unified District School to see if they have an inkjet collection program implemented with Planet Green. If they don’t – start one. It’s in your hands to improve the wellbeing of your community and Planet Green will provide you all the materials you need to get started free of charge.
