    From cartridges to elephant conservation …
    It’s all part of a day’s work for primary school children!
    Primary school children are learning all about the lives of orphan elephants, as part of a new educational initiative by Cartridge SAVE to encourage environmental awareness among children aged 7-11.The recent BBC documentary series, Elephant Diaries, is providing inspiration for primary school children taking part in Cartridge SAVE’s educational initiative, which is currently being rolled out in schools across the country.The UK’s leading online retailer of printer cartridges, Cartridge SAVE actively encourages cartridge recycling and refilling. Revenue from every recycled inkjet and toner cartridge is then donated by Cartridge SAVE to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – the charity that hit the media spotlight for its work in rescuing and rehabilitating orphan rhinos and elephants.
    Now Cartridge SAVE is holding presentations in class assemblies and providing lesson plans, bringing together the themes of recycling and conservation so that children can understand the contribution we can each make towards protecting the environment.Says Jonathan Clark, Managing Director of Cartridge SAVE: “The story of orphan elephants really helps to bring to life the importance of environmental conservation for primary school children. As a socially responsible company, we’re keen to explain to children how we can all do our bit to help protect the environment. “For us, it’s about encouraging cartridge recycling and using the revenue from that to help support The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. For primary school children, it could be helping to recycle at home or walking to school more often, instead of using the car.”Having launched the scheme initially in the North West, Cartridge SAVE is now offering the educational resources on a national scale to fit within the Personal, Social Health Education curriculum at Key Stage 2.
