Bin full of used printer cartridgesDid you know you can raise money for your school by collecting and recycling ink cartridges?

This week we are highlighting the Ink Bin website to help you find a new way to raise funds and increase reuse at your school.

Every year millions of ink cartridges are thrown away in the UK, yet many brands of ink cartridges can be cleaned, refilled and resold.  These reused cartridges can produce the same high quality prints, meaning they are just as good as new ones, but use less valuable resources: such as the oil used to make the plastic cartridge.

By choosing to buy refilled ink cartridges you can save money and contribute to creating a more circular economy.
