    organizations who participated in the program resulting in preventing
    approximately 26 million printer cartridges from entering our nation’s
    landfills to date.”Schools and parents all across America should be
    proud of their efforts teaching children well,” said Sean Michaels,
    co-president, Funding Factory parent company Environmental Reclamation
    Services. “They should be credited with building the next generation of
    environmental stewards. Even preschoolers can help with sorting
    recyclables and teens can trade in their old cell phones with Funding
    Factory’s sister program, Maxback.com,”  he added.America Recycles Day
    is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of
    recycling in the United States. It’s one day to inform and educate, one
    day to get our neighbors, friends and community leaders excited about
    what can be accomplished when we all work together, one day to make
    recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.
