Greening LA USD Campuses with Funds and Trees
Planet Green and TreePeople have partnered to challenge the Los Angeles Unified School
District (LAUSD) to put more green into their lives. Together they are offering the
implementation of a campus based e-waste recycling program combined with a tree planting
incentive. The concept is incredibly simple. Recycle 1,500 qualified inkjet cartridges with
Planet Green and they will sponsor the planting of ten trees on that school campus. In
addition to increasing the beauty and health of LAUSD campuses, through Planet Green’s
recycling program, each school will raise on average $2,070.00 to reach their 1,500 inkjet
cartridge goal. Their combined efforts will also contribute to the mission of Mayor Antonio
Villaraigosa’s Million Trees LA Initiative (www.millionstreesla.com).
Since Planet Green’s inception in 2000 it has quickly become the leading inkjet, laser
cartridge and cell phone recycling program. They have been able to assist thousands of
schools, non-profits, and religious organizations in raising vital funds for their causes. Planet
Green’s mission is to provide an e-waste recycling program; in addition to educating our
population that e-waste is reusable, not disposable. Planet Green strongly believes that
education is the key to changing unsustainable practices and hopes that everyone will
become active in combating e-waste. According to Recharger magazine, “Every year, more
than 300 million plastic printer cartridges end up dumped in landfills in the United States
and around the world - almost eight cartridges are thrown away in the United States every
second.” Through the support of their participants, Planet Green has been able to motivate
awareness to Reduce, Recycle, Reprint.
