I write about budget meals and eating super cheaply here and on Facebook and when I saw some envelopes recently at a charity thing asking for used ink cartridges, I had a thought. Did you know that you can help raise charitable funds simply by recycling your ink cartridges via Recycle4Charity programme?
I thought it would be a lovely thing to do and the obvious charity for a frugal uk food blog to be involved in is the Trussell Trust who do so much to keep desperate people fed.
Between April 2018 and March 2019, food banks in the Trussell Trust network provided a record 1.6 million food supplies to people in crisis, a 19% increase on the previous year.
Recycle Your Ink Cartridges By Post
I was really surprised to learn that as much as £1 each can be raised for each cartridge recycled in this way – which would soon add up. For each inkjet cartridge recycled via the programme the charity will receive a £1 donation, meaning you can help the environment whilst raising money for charity!
Where Do I Recycle Ink Cartridges
It’s very easy to do. You just need to click the link and ask Recycle4Charity to send you some envelopes. Once they’ve arrived, pop a couple, or more, of used up ink cartridges in one of the envelopes provided and bung it in the post. Job done
There are almost 10,000 of us in the Facebook group now, and many more who read the blog. Each envelope needs to be returned with a minimum of 2 cartridges in it. So if 10,000 people each sent just 2 cartridges, we could raise £20,000 for the Trussell Trust. Wouldn’t that be amazing!
