Against Malaria Foundation (registered in the UK as charity number 1105319) is the charity we have chosen to support with your cartridge recycling efforts. Please note that Cartridges4Charity (operated by Seriously Easy Ltd, a company) is not a registered charity, but the recycling value of your empty cartridges, mobile phones, and full/unused cartridges is passed on to the AMF.
So far we've donated the equivalent of over 61,000 anti-malaria nets.
The foundation do pioneering work in the developing world to prevent the spread of malaria by distributing mosquito nets, which reduce child mortality and cases of malaria.
A net is the most effective means of preventing malaria, and produced and distributed at the cost of approximately $2 USD per net — so just one popular cartridge could buy a whole net and protect somebody from mosquitoes.
GiveWell — who critically assess the finances and activities of charities — have rated the Against Malaria Foundation one of their top-rated charities, indicating that they are extremely effective in helping increase lifespans, and have growth capacity to use additional donations effectively.
We work out the equivalent number of nets purchased your items have bought, which is published on our web site.
Just a single in-demand empty cartridge could purchase a mosquito net, and a popular mobile phone or an unused cartridge in good condition could buy ten!
Recycle for free now — all types of cartridges, mobile phones — and if we can't use yours to benefit good causes we'll help you find the best green solution for you.
