Recycling plays part in tsunami fundraiser

On behalf of Redeem, the mobile phone and printer cartridge recycling company, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has given their support to our recent Tsunami Recycling Appeal.

Your readers have helped us to raise more than 5,000 for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Tsunami Earthquake Appeal. Those who donated joined over 100 companies and more than 1,900 individuals who helped the appeal.

We asked the public to send us their old mobiles and empty printer cartridges to be recycled – and in return, we pledged to give cash to the DEC.

We are delighted with the response so far, with our total currently standing at 4,300 and, as a company deeply committed to its charity work, we have contributed a further 700.

This money will go to areas affected by the disaster via the DEC’s member agencies, with the DEC ensuring it reaches those who need it most.

The DEC is appealing for outstanding donations to be banked, so if you requested a freepost bag to donate a mobile or cartridge, please endeavour to return it as soon as possible.

Although the Tsunami Recycling Appeal is coming to a close, there is still plenty of opportunity to help charities and the environment through recycling.

Whether you want to make a one-off mobile phone or cartridge donation, or you want to make regular donations from your workplace (which we collect free of charge), we would be delighted to hear from you. All you have to do is visit www. and choose a charity.
