Help FundingFactory Plant 3,000 Trees For Earth Day 2013!

Last year, with your help, FundingFactory was able to plant more than 2,500 trees for Earth Day. This year, our goal has been bumped up to 3,000, and we need your help to achieve it! Is your school looking to celebrate Earth Day but doesn’t know where to start? Read on to learn how recycling e-waste can bring funding into your school, and help us meet our green goal simultaneously.

For every 100 “point-worthy” items received during the month of April, FundingFactory will plant one tree with CarbonFund.org. By collecting these items, your school will not only be on its way to earning funding and educational technology, but also planting trees for generations to enjoy. FundingFactory makes this even better by providing free shipping materials to make the sending and receiving process as simple as can be.

Keep in mind that 300,000 items = 3,000 trees! Together we can reach our goal!

Register for free to get started with FundingFactory’s fundraising-thru-recycling program. Join the more than 50,000 participants, across the county, that are already collecting e-waste for their schools and organizations.


“Point-worthy” items consists of any item that will pay out 10₵ or more. This does not include toner tanks.

Recycling Rumble inspires eco-friendly competition

Nothing like a little friendly competition to bring out the recycling champion in all of us!

This spring, FundingFactory is giving organizations the chance to earn even more by competing against—and out-recycling!—another FundingFactory organization.

The winner of each Rumble will get a 25% bonus for all qualifying items received between March 13-May 31. Let’s do the math: If your group raises $500 and beats your rival, you’ll earn an extra $125!  

Not-to-mention, the one organization that out-recycles all other organizations will also win an Apple iPad HD!
