In the run-up to #GlobalRecyclingWeek, we’d like to share an update on our Toner Recycling Programme where 100% of the proceeds go to charity.
We are committed to ensuring that we can help reduce the impact on the environment by recycling and this is why we introduced our Toner Recycling programme back in 2013. By collecting our customers used ink cartridges and sending them to our recycling partner, we generate a small amount of money which we then pass onto our charity partner, The Disabilities Trust BIRT. The donation goes to the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) which provide a fantastic centre where individuals who have suffered a brain injury can visit as part of their recovery plan.
We are delighted to share that we’ve raised a total of £3,607.91 since the start of this project in 2013 and that’s all down to our customers taking the time to recycle their used ink and toner cartridges. We recently sent £527.44 to BIRT and Alex Hill, Assistant Service Manager at Kerwin Court Rehabilitation Centre says: “We are really overwhelmed by the generous support from Quills, both in their past support and in this more recent donation. The service users are delighted at being able to choose new items and have settled on; DVD’s for movie nights, WII games for their game nights and basketballs, footballs and garden games for the summer as the nicer weather approaches. Thank you from all of us at Kerwin Court”.
Quills would also like to say a huge thank you to our customers for recycling and helping to raise funds for BIRT.
We’d love to reach a fundraising target of £5,000 by the end of 2020 so keep up the good work and keep recycling.
