Charity schemes to pass on promotional pens that work?
We’ve already covered recycling or reusing dead ones but Trevor has a question about recycling schemes for pens that still work:
Here at the School of Health Studies we get inundated with promotional pens from various medical and drug companies.
Most of these pens never get used and just fill up our desks draws. Is there any way of recycling them so that they can be used in third world schools or something?
I suspect most medical and drug companies aren’t going to pay any attention to a request for “no more pens, thanks” so it makes sense to want to pass them on to someone who’ll use them.
So does anyone know of any schemes to send school supplies to third world countries – or deprived ones closer to home?
