• Think Inks accepting empty ink cartridges to help NHS

        • As from 1st April 2020, Think Inks, a UK printer consumables recycling organisation, is donating up to £5 to the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal for every used ink cartridge it receives for recycling.

          Estimates show that around 90 per cent of empty ink cartridges are thrown away. With increasing numbers of people working and learning at home due to the COVID-19 distancing measures, it is possible that up to 30 per cent more ink cartridges than normal will be discarded.

          Think Inks is asking the UK to help from home, by sending in used ink cartridges for recycling. Reusing ink cartridges doesn't just bring environmental benefits when sent to Think Inks, it also results in a donation to charity.

          James O'Connor, Think Inks Managing Director said, “the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the way we all work, but the biggest impact is to our NHS and the people who are risking their lives to save ours. With most methods of conventional fundraising paused, we are proud to be able to raise substantial funds without asking the public for cash."

          To send empty cartridges to Think Inks you must request an approved FREEPOST bag from the Think Inks website: www.inksnhs.com. This will be sent to your address. Fill the bag with your empty cartridges (two to ten cartridges are permitted in each bag) to recycle. The bag can then be posted in any post box, for free. No direct contact with others is required.

          Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together added, “we are truly impressed with the sheer volume of support we are receiving and this innovative Think Inks campaign, that not only helps those wonderful NHS staff and the volunteers working day and night to save lives at a time of critical importance for us all, but is also healthier for our planet.”

          NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal provides emergency funds for a variety of initiatives to help NHS staff, volunteers and patients. These include well-being packs/gifts of refreshments/wash-kits; temporary accommodation; parking costs; volunteer expenses; food deliveries; electronic communication devices to help patients in isolation stay connected to their family and friends to assist during the current crisis.
