‘Ink Again’ -Meg recycles for charity

Thursday, September 29, 2005

Meg Munn MP has given her support to the baby charity Tommy’s fundraising scheme that also promotes recycling. The scheme called ‘Ink Again’, involves people and businesses supporting the charity and helping the environment by forwarding their empty printer cartridges for recycling.


Meg said,


‘I support Tommy’s recycling scheme because it is an astonishing statistic that each year over 40,000 babies are born too small,  or too soon, and one in four women experience miscarriage. The funds raised by the recycling scheme help Tommy’s carry out valuable medical research into problem pregnancies and helps parents through healthy pregnancies. The scheme also re-cycles items which would otherwise be thrown away and helps the environment as well.’


Karen Wint, Tommy’s Director of Fundraising, said: ‘We are thrilled to have this positive support from Meg Munn. Her standing as an MP, and her role as Deputy Minister for Women and Equality, will encourage others to support the valuable work Tommy’s does. We believe every baby deserves the best start in life. We are committed to funding medical research and providing information to help more mums and dads through a healthy pregnancy and birth’.


The recycling scheme is managed by Environmental Business Products Limited (EBPL) who are experienced in the remanufacture of printer cartridges. Managing Director Pat Stead, says: ‘It is great to have this senior-level of support from Meg Munn. Our scheme helps charities like Tommy’s and helps the environment at the same time. There are still millions of cartridges being thrown into bins every year that could be recycled so we hope many more people in Sheffield will log onto www.inkagain.co.uk and ask for a free recycling bag’.


The partnership between Tommy’s and EBPL started 8 years ago and to date over £250,000 has been raised from ink cartridges alone. For more information about Tommy’s visit www.tommys.org.
