    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.
