    Staples Canada is well on the way to reaching their goal of a million cartridges thanks to the Million Cartridge Challenge
    THANKS TO PARTICIPANTS WHO HAVE HELPED RAISE MORE THAN 638,000 CARTRIDGES SO FAR
    RICHMOND
    HILL, ON, Dec.08  STAPLES Canada has collected more than 638,000 used
    ink and toner cartridges as part of their Million Cartridge Challenge,
    and is appealing Canadians to help surpass their goal of collecting a
    million by April 22, 2009. “The challenge was put forth to Canadians on
    September 24 and we have received an overwhelming response. We have
    re-routed more than half-a-million cartridges from landfills. I’m happy
    to see Canadians taking action,” said

    STAPLES Canada President, Steve Matyas.
    The
    campaign, generated through the Recycle For Education program which
    donates $1.00 from every cartridge collected back to participating
    schools, is well on the way to its goal of one million ink and toner
    cartridges by Earth Day, 2009. “We thank everyone for their support and
    encourage people to keep dropping off their cartridges to help not only
    the environment, but our schools as well. It just goes to show how
    important the environment is to Canadians,” continued Matyas. For more
    information, please visit easy.staples.ca. It takes 400 to 1,000 years
    for one ink/toner cartridge to decompose in a landfill site. Used
    ink/toner cartridges can be dropped into bins provided inside any
    STAPLES store in Canada. The Million Cartridge Challenge will wrap up
    on Earth Day – April 22, 2009.
