April 22, 2010 - PRLog -- This year, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the first Earth Day, President Obama encourages communities to join together to make a difference in the world around them. Even small steps can make a big difference. In this spirit, schools and organizations everywhere are celebrating Earth Day with environmental lessons, parties, and community activities. This year, however, schools can actually use these celebrations to earn money, supplement their budget, and make necessary purchases.

CFK (Cartridges for Kids), an electronics recycler, is offering schools and organizations $50, just by celebrating Earth Day. To be eligible, submit photos of your organization celebrating Earth Day by recycling electronics with CFK. Fliers, shipping labels, and instructions are available on their website: All submissions will be entered into a drawing, and the winner will receive $50. Submissions will be accepted until 5pm Mountain Time on April 30th.

Schools and organizations can also earn bonus money (aside from the market value of the electronics they recycle) by holding Collection Drives. Groups that collect 100 cell phones or $200 worth of electronic recyclables during their 6-week drive are awarded a bonus check of $50, valuable money that can be put towards a school activity, field trip, or savings fund.
