Chatsworth, California (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
Talk to any school, university, club or non-profit organization these days, and they will tell you that fundraising is a major challenge in 2011. With the gloomy economic outlook and a dramatic shift in demographics marked by the retirement of scores of Baby Boomers, charitable giving has fallen to its lowest level in decades. As the slumping economy causes many American families to tighten budgets, private donations are also plummeting. Contributions to schools and universities have declined substantially, most national philanthropic endeavors are cash-strapped, and even fund-raising drives for local car washes, bake sales and the enduring cookie sales of the Girl Scouts have seen an historic crash. Add cuts in Federal, State and Municipal budgets and those organizations that need the most help are fighting for their very existence.
For Planet Green of Chatsworth, California (http://www.planetgreenrecycle.com), however, fundraising dollars have never been handed out faster! Planet Green is a world leader of wholesale, high quality remanufactured inkjet cartridges which they recycle and refurbish right in Southern California. They also recycle toners, cell phones and a variety of small electronics. The folks at Planet Green have come up with a simple and environmentally-friendly solution to fuel national, local and community-based fund-raising efforts and their cash donations have recently surpassed $40 Million. If there ever was a “Win-Win” for beleaguered non-profit groups across the United States … this would be it.
Since 2000, Planet Green has been providing critical fund raising opportunities via an environmental “E-Waste for Cash” exchange program that creates a powerful, dynamic and virtuous opportunity for year-round fundraising through recycling. Planet Green establishes organizations as EnviroPartners and pays cash for old or empty ink jet cartridges, toners, cell phones and a variety of other small electronics. They remanufacture and refurbish ink-jet cartridges via some of the industry’s most rigorous quality guidelines and sell them at a fraction of OEM prices.
In keeping with their mantra “Only by Working Together, Can We Make a Difference,” Planet Green provides all the tools necessary for schools, groups, non-profits and businesses to collect recyclable goods and raise funds! They provide free promotional materials, a free organization-based website, free shipping labels, complete customer service support, real-time online accounting, and a 7-Day turnaround for payment.
If that’s not motivation enough for a school, club, religious group, or non-profit to contact Planet Green today, consider this … with the rapid changes in technology, electronic waste is considered to be one of the biggest threats to the world environment. A single, inkjet cartridge can take up to 1000 years to be broken down by nature and discarded cell phones contain arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, copper and zinc … all toxic substances that pose a major threat to public health. Recycling also conserves natural resources, reduces air and water pollution as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
