Epson America, in partnership with FundingFactory, allows schools and nonprofits nationwide to return ink cartridges for rewards that can boost fundraising efforts and help the environment. Educational and nonprofit organizations can earn points by collecting genuine Epson ink cartridges and sending them to FundingFactory for recycling. The cartridges will be converted to energy through an environmentally sound incineration process at a licensed waste-to-energy recycling facility. Participation in FundingFactory is completely free to all schools and nonprofit organizations. Once an organization registers at FundingFactory’s web site, materials are sent to help them launch the program and start earning points in an easy-to-use online account. Their account is credited with points for every eligible Epson cartridge sent in; those points can be redeemed by the organization for cash and/or equipment.
