UK based charity The Recycling Factory has reached its 2011 fundraising target of £175,000 ($275,061/€203,485) for the UK Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). The funds were raised through the collection and recycling of inkjet and toner cartridges, as well as mobile phones and gadgets.
Emma Martin, Corporate Partnerships Officer, RNLI, commented: “We are delighted that our partnership with The Recycling Factory continues to go from strength to strength. Reaching our 2011 target of £175,000 a month early is a great achievement, and has only been made possible through the generous contributions of RNLI supporters.
“With our coastal waters getting busier year on year the need for funds has never been greater, so please keep on recycling!”
