This donation was possible through the empty printer cartridge collection initiative that Mr Price and Green Office have had over the past 4 years. The cartridge waste that has been collected from MRP stores has been turned into cash through the partnership as these cartridges have either been remanufactured and supplied back into the market by Green Office, or diverted to greenABLE for recycling. All the components of these cartridges have been reused in some way and therefore have reduced waste to landfill and created employment for previously disadvantaged disabled individuals.
greenABLE’s mission is to change the lives of previously disadvantaged persons with disabilities by empowering them through a unique sustainable incubator model which incorporates employment, life skills, education & work integration skills whilst contributing to greener economy goals of our country.
"This greenABLE team is making a massive impact in the disability as well as the environmental sector and we are extremely proud of what is going on in greenABLE. We would like to thank the Mr Price Group for their continued support. This support is assisting in changing people’s lives, which we know is very much part of Mr Price’s DNA", says Bevlen Sudhu, greenABLE’s General Manager.
So, recycling your cartridge waste does not only help divert waste from landfill but also creates employment opportunities for previously disadvantaged physically disabled individuals.
