Ink and Toner recycling raises £1402.74 for Jeans for Genes
OfficeXpress is pleased to announce that we have raised a donation of £1402.74 on behalf of Jeans for Genes, all thanks to the customers who choose to use our free ink and toner recycling program.
Jeans for Genes funds the work of Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity dedicated to supporting those affected by genetic disorders, making the difference to the lives of children and families across the UK.
With a small team, Genetic Disorders UK organises the Jeans for Genes fundraising event to raise vital donations to help with genetic disorders. With more than 6,000 diagnosed disorders and with new disorders being identified every day it’s estimated that 1 in 25 children are affected by a genetic disorder. This means a staggering 30,000 babies and children in the UK alone are newly diagnosed each year with more than half a million children and adults currently living with a genetic disorder.
Laura Pattison, Campaign Director said:
“On behalf of all the children we support, Genetic Disorders UK would like to say a huge thank you to OfficeXpress for their kind donation of £1402.74. This donation will make a real difference to the lives of children in the UK living with life threatening genetic disorders, providing the vital support and care services they so urgently need”
Our ink and toner recycle program continues to grow from strength to strength, with new customers requesting to join the program daily. Each time we collect a box of inks and toners, we try to monetise as much as possible. This results in less material going to landfill and in turn results in more donations for our chosen charities.
Chris Milligan, Marketing Manager of OfficeXpress, said, “Everyone at OfficeXpress knows how important our recycle service is in generating donation. Although the waste items seem of little use or importance, we are able to make a difference to charities such as Genetic Disorders UK.”
Most customers who use our free recycle program need to have confidence that their waste is handled by a fully accredited service provider. When you can provide customers with fully auditable documentation, while providing donations to charity, it’s a win-win for all parties.
You can help great causes like the Jeans for Genes by recycling your empty ink and toner cartridges via our free recycling service.
Thanks to everybody who has already recycled with us; it’s because of you we are able to support Jeans for Genes!
