    From cartridges to elephant conservation …
    It’s all part of a day’s work for primary school children!
    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.
