A primary school is Bridlington has set a brilliant example to education institutions and businesses alike by enthusiastically recycling their ink cartridges.

Martongate Primary School in Bridlington is one of only 14 in the country to take part in a recycling scheme launched by bread manufacturers Warburtons, which has teamed up with supplier BPI to transform old carrier bags and other collected plastics into benches.

The school was picked after giving the firm a short explanation about what they do for the environment.

June Harrison, a teacher at the school, said: "We recycle paper and ink cartridges, feed the birds and have a wildlife garden. The children seem to enjoy recycling. The year six pupils go around collecting paper to put in the blue bins."

This news comes soon after Diane Blohowiak, from the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay, said that switching fonts to Century Gothic where possible can help to save cash on printer ink consumables,ink cartridges,toner cartridges and help the environment.
