On Tuesday 21 May at the student breakfast meeting for the Living Room Specialist students, we were lucky to have a meeting with Tony McKenna from the Inkshop.  The Inkshop specialises in printer cartridges that have been recycled to 'as good as new' and sells them at a price that is a lot cheaper than the original product.  At our meeting, Tony explained the recycling process and how this helps to stop waste going into the landfill.  Our students learnt about the 'closed recycling process' and how we can collect cartridges at our school to recycle them and sell them back to The Inkshop.  The money we gain from this, we can put back into our sustainable projects.  We have been working with Tony over the last two years and we put money towards our garden shed and vegetables gardens.
