Recycling by Businesses Supports Charity Through New Program
Los Angeles, CA— International Laser
Group (ILG), a manufacturer of premium compatible inkjet and laser printer
and fax cartridges, has developed a nationwide buyback recycling program
enabling corporations to donate monies generated from cartridge recycling
directly to the charity, cause or foundation of their choice. ILG is a

implement strategies for corporate social responsibility structures and
Providing effective business recycling
solutions is one way that corporations can take a more proactive approach
toward better corporate citizenship. According to the Funding Factory,
more than 300 million laser cartridges are thrown away every year, and
each laser cartridge requires 3 1/3 quarts of oil to produce. ILG’s
nationwide cartridge buyback recycling program allows companies to donate
monies from recycled laser and inkjet cartridges to the cause of their
choice, and also eliminates hazardous waste from the nation’s landfills.
“In seven years, enough used laser
and inkjet cartridges will be added to landfills to be able to build a
bridge to the moon!” said Gary Michaels, founder and CEO of ILG.
“Businesses need to recycle their waste to be a part of the solution,
and our program makes it easy and financially rewarding to do so.”
ILG currently delivers cost-effective
laser and inkjet cartridges to companies that have paper-intensive business
processes and a need for volume printing, including government entities,
law offices, realtors, school districts, insurance firms and title companies.
In addition to recycling cartridges for charity, ILG also offers partners
