A group of sorority girls in the US are sponsoring an ink cartridge recycling drive.

The members of Alpha Kappa Alpha at the University of Central Oklahoma are aiming to raise money for a local community project, the UCO360.com reported.

Although the initiative includes book recycling, so far the project has received many more ink cartridges, which the girls plan to exchange for cash donations at a local depot.

They are hoping to raise enough money to fund an after-school club for a local apartment complex.

Chelsea Woods, the president of Alpha Kappa Alpha, said to the news site that "it's been a better turnout than we thought it was going to be".

She added: "We'll probably start it again in the spring semester … if people have [cartridges] after the holidays, they can donate them."

So far, the girls have accumulated 35 used ink cartridges and three books.
