Recycling effort to help tsunami relief

HR departments can help victims in tsunami-stricken areas by encouraging employees to recycle old mobile phones and printer cartridges.

The recent earthquake off the coast of Sumatra has led to an estimated 150,000 deaths, with thousands more injured or forced to flee their homes.

Eurosource, which specialises in running charity recycling appeals, has pledged to swap old mobiles and printer cartridges for cash which will go straight to the Disasters Emergency Committee, the organisation responsible for co-ordinating the UK’s national appeal in response to major overseas disasters.

Eurosource has created a dedicated website where you can find out which mobiles and cartridges can be recycled, and how much will be given to the DEC for each one.

If you want to help the Tsunami Recycling Appeal, please call 08712 50 50 50 for a freepost bag.
