Recycle and save lives
Did you know that this week is Recycling Week and you can
save lives by getting involved?
Take your bag of clothes to one of our 700 shops or recycle your
old phones and ink cartridges to support our life-saving work.
You can recycle your old phones and ink cartridges through our
partner, the Recycling Factory,
who will donate up to £4.50 to our life-saving
work for every printer cartridge that can be successfully
recycled and between £5 and £30 for every mobile
phone that can be successfully recycled.

cupboards and drawers across the UK – most of which end up in
landfill sites which are harmful to the environment. And of the 65
million printer cartridges sold each year, only an estimated 15%
are recycled or reused. By recycling your mobile phone and printer
