We are pleased to welcome Planet Ark as the latest environmental NGO member of the Global Product Stewardship Council.
Planet Ark Environmental Foundation unites people, business and government to create environmental change through engaging and practical solutions.
Planet Ark has been active in the recycling and product stewardship space since being founded in 1992. The success of the innovative ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program is one of Planet Ark’s key achievements to date. This voluntary extended producer responsibility program brings together a group of committed original equipment manufacturers, and it has recycled over 19 million used printer cartridges in 10 years. Planet Ark is an active promoter of other product stewardship schemes in Australia, particularly through the RecyclingNearYou.com.au website.
Planet Ark endeavours to facilitate new product stewardship and recycling programs, particularly for materials where few recycling options are currently available. Most recently, Planet Ark has worked to secure more recycling options for consumer batteries, and is an active member of the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative.Tags: ABRI, Australia, Australian Battery Recycling Initiative, batteries, Cartridges 4 Planet Ark, environmental NGO, Global Product Stewardship Council, GlobalPSC, NGO, Planet Ark, printer cartridges, product stewardship, recycling, RecyclingNearYou, voluntary
