memorial day flag
It is an observance that started out as Decoration Day, a day to honor the Union and Confederate soldiers of the American Civil War. Memorial Day as we know it today, is a solemn occasion, but also a festive one. Honored on the last Monday of every May, this is the day we give thanks and celebrate the lives of all the soldiers who died in service of the nation.

While many of us honor a family member or family friend by laying flowers on their grave, others among us volunteer to show your respect by laying the national flag upon the graves of soldiers in national cemeteries.  We at CompAndSave honor our fallen heroes via this special Memorial Day Post.

Some Suggestions for this Memorial Day

Memorial Day falls on May 25th this year. Here are some suggestions to join in the celebrations this year:

Memorial Day in Washington DC – You could plan a visit at this time to join in various events such as:
  • The National Memorial Day Concert on Sunday, May 24th which will feature Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise, and other guest artists along with the National Symphony Orchestra
  • Visit the monuments and memorials such as the DC War Memorial, Eisenhower Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Women in Vietnam Memorial, the Smithsonian Museums and many others. (Check out this Monuments & Memorials in Washington DC (Visitors Guide) for more suggestions). 
  • Watch the National Memorial Day Parade which begins at 2 PM on Memorial Day on Constitution Avenue. Featuring marching bands, active duty and retired military units, youth groups, floats and hundreds of veterans join over 250,000 who turn up to watch.
  • Visit the Arlington National Cemetery (where the original Decoration Day was held on 30 May 1868) where a quarter million mini flags will decorate the headstones, where a wreath is laid on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and where you can watch the Changing of Guard ceremony
  • Join the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally where 500,000 motorcycles and their riders honor MIAs and POWs.

Major Events in Maryland and Virginia include

  • The Memorial Day Commemoration at the Town Hall in Sharpsburg, on Saturday, 24th May at 11 AM  
  • The Viva Vienna festival (May 23 through 25) including tributes, crafts, rides, music, food and more 
  • The Memorial Day Parade at The City of Falls Church, Virginia which also feature live entertainment and other events.
You could of course join in any of the events closer to home! For example, you could attend a service especially for Memorial Day. You may also visit a local monument or cemetery where you can pay your respects quietly and personally.

Honoring a friend/family member on the Facebook Wall

You could also honor a friend or family member on your Facebook Wall. We’ll be happy to host shared Memorial Day posts on our Facebook Wall, so don’t forget to share your posts on our wall as well. You could also leave us a comment below to tell us about your hero and how you would like to honor them.

recycle printer cartridges
It is estimated that about 1.1 billion printer cartridges are used up each year. Approximately 70% of used printer cartridges simply get tossed into the trash. In the United States alone, about 8 cartridges are thrown away each second. Experts surmise that a cartridge takes up to a thousand years to biodegrade. Each new cartridge is made using about 3 pints of oil. Only a fraction of the cartridges are recycled; a vast majority end up in landfills.

If these rather scary facts have given you pause for thought, you will readily understand the impetus behind our year long recycling cum fundraising program. Currently only a small portion of cartridges are recycled. Right now recycling helps save about 40,000 metric tons of plastic and metal and we’d like your help in doing more.

All this year we are running an initiative that is in keeping with our core principles – (a) offering our customers eco friendly choices such as remanufactured cartridges to help lower their overall carbon footprint, (b) helping recycle e-waste and preventing having it end up in landfills and (c) fulfilling the corporate social responsibility that we at CompAndSave.com have always held close to our hearts by giving back to the community in any way that we can.

Our year long recycling fundraiser

Food For the Poor fundraiser
All this year we are conducting a fundraiser where we invite you to send us your used and empty cartridges. We then dispose of them by handing them over to the GreenHippo.com, an online recycling program that keeps e-waste out of landfills and even pays for it. The proceeds from the cartridges handed over then go to Food for the Poor. This is a nonprofit devoted to feeding millions of hungry people throughout the world and brining about lasting and positive changes to 17 Latin American and Caribbean countries.

Our aim is to raise $3,500 for these dual worthy causes: recycling e waste and helping to improve the lives of the poor and needy. Here’s how it works and how you can be a part of this worthy cause:

 

 How you can be a part of this charity fundraiser

For every 100,000 used cartridges recycled, it is possible to save 9599 kilograms of aluminum, 40 tons of plastic and hundreds of thousands of liters of oil. You can help too:
  • Just mail us any used ink and toner cartridges you have or drop them off at this address:
CompAndSave.com Inc.
38929 CHERRY ST
NEWARK, CA 94560
  • We ship off all the collected cartridges to Green Hippo each month or whenever we collect sufficient quantities (we are already registered with the service and we’ll be sure to share the invoice from Green Hippo with you)
  • All the proceeds from our cartridge recycling/fundraiser will go to Food for the Poor to support various programs. 
We hope that you will join in this worthy cause by sending us used cartridges in large numbers and by helping spread the word. If you have a question or observation, feel free to send us a query or leave us a comment.

CompAndSave printer cartridges

May 11, 2015

CompAndSave's goal is to collect and recycle 10,000 empty printer cartridges, and donate every cent raised to Food For the Poor Non-Profit to feed the Hungry.


Newark, CA,  May 06, 2015  -  CompAndSave, a Bay Area based company that provides compatible ink & toner cartridges,  is supporting Food For the Poor Non-profit  by donating all funds raised from their printer cartridge recycling program launched this May . Their fundraising will help provide meals to the hungry as well as provide an eco-friendly recycling option for empty printer cartridges. 

CompAndSave Supports Food For the Poor
Mail Your Empty Printer Cartridges!
“Last year, over 400,000 tons of ink and toner cartridges ended up in landfills. They can actually sit there for over 1,000 years, but no one, not even scientists know how long it takes for plastic to fully biodegrade because it’s never been seen, “ said Andrew Yeung, President of CompAndSave.com. “We’ve been planning for some time to address this issue and have finally found the ideal solution with Food for the Poor – the Non-Profit Organization.”

CompAndSave is we collecting empty ink and toner cartridges by asking their shoppers and visitors to mail cartridge donations to their headquarters in Newark, California. From there, they will send them to GreenHippo.com, an e-waste recycling company located in LA, CA, where the printer cartridges will be recycled and CompAndSave will be reimbursed.  They have pledged to donate 100% of these proceeds to Food for the Poor Non-Profit Organization and have a dedicated Champions Page for direct donations.

“We are not seeking any profit, this isn’t our goal”, said by Andrew Yeung, President of CompAndSave.com, “Our only aim is to lower the amount of e-waste in landfills and provide meals to those in need.”  CompAndSave will be devoting resources to support Food for the Poor with their printer cartridge recycling program through a variety of channels. They have chosen the campaign slogan, “You Can Help the Hungry, One Cartridge at a Time”; to highlight that even one empty cartridge contribution makes a difference to feed one child at a less than $0.13 a day for a total of $48.50 a year. CompAndSave plans to help feed as many hungry children as possible with their recycling program.

The fundraising goal of CompAndSave is to collect 10,000 cartridges by this time next year, and the company is encouraging everyone to help them reach it. Donated empty ink and toner cartridges can be mailed to the address below at donators’ own expense for shipping:
