German Shepherd Search and Rescue Dog Association Wins Title in FundingFactory’s Recycling Rumble
Recycling Contest Raises $43.44, Benefits Both Environment and this canine search and rescue organization
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- German Shepherd Search and Rescue Dog Association has triumphed over Jordan Baptist School for the winning title in FundingFactory’s Recycling Rumble contest by collecting 87 recyclables. Out-recycling the competition has earned German Shepherd Search and Rescue Dog Association a 25 percent bonus on the value of the items it collected during the contest.
German Shepherd Search and Rescue Dog Association went head-to-head against Jordan Baptist School from Burbank, IL to collect and ship the most inkjet and toner cartridges, cell phones, and small electronics from March 13-May 31, 2012, with support from parents, community members, and local businesses. FundingFactory matched the schools according to their comparable recycling rate.
Since 2011, German Shepherd Search and Rescue Dog Association has raised $150 in cash and rewards by recycling empty laser and inkjet cartridges, used cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, GPS devices, and digital cameras with FundingFactory. The recycling rewards earned this year will allow German Shepherd Search and Rescue Dog Association to pay the expenses involved in searches and trainings.
“Everyone wins when we come together to protect our environment,” said Sean Michaels, co-president of FundingFactory. “Our schools, churches, and charities gain resources, and landfills are spared ever increasing e-waste. Even those who didn’t come out on top in their Rumbles are winners today.”
