When it comes to recycling every little bit helps. Newell Rubbermaid and Staples Canada have partnered with TerraCycle Canada to recycle any brand of pen, mechanical pencil, marker and caps, highlighter and caps, permanent marker and caps. Help them by collecting and recycling these items at your nearest Staples Store.
The used writing instruments will be recycled into park benches, waste bins and other things. As an added bonus TerraCycle Canada will donate $0.02 to Earth Day Canada for every used Sharpie, Paper Mate, Expo and uni-ball product sent in.
