Take part in the contest: recycle as many of your used writing instruments as possible and be in with a chance of winning £1,000 for your school.
Start the school year off right: sign up and encourage your pupils and staff to collect as many of their used writing instruments as possible and send them to us to be recycled. You have until 25th November to take part and be in with a chance of winning £1,000!
The more pens, felt tips, highlighters, markers, correction fluid pots, correction tapes, mechanical pencils, and eraser pens you send in, the greater your positive environmental impact and the higher your chances of winning funds for your school, or the charity of your choice. Here's how to get started:
1. Click on the ‘sign up now’ button and fill out the participation form.
2. Encourage your staff and pupils to collect as many writing instruments as possible. To help you to that end, we’ve created some assets for you to use - click the links below to view and download them.
3. Send us your parcels of writing instruments by 25th November at the latest!
To win, your school must send us (by 25th November!) the highest number of writing instruments.
…to be reinvested in your school, or donated to charity!
