Recycle your used pens by dropping them in bins at the Biomedical Library, Geisel library, and elsewhere on campus.
In partnership with TerraCycle and OfficeMax, a campus-wide program has been initiated to collect our defunct writing instruments across campus. The writing instruments will be sent to TerraCycle and be upcycled and made into fun and innovative products.
TerraCycle will donate two cents for every writing instrument received to support the Sustainability Resource Center on campus. All pens, mechanical pencils, correction tape dispensers and markers are acceptable including Sharpies, highlighters, and dry erase markers.
The next time you are in the libraries, drop off your old writing instruments for this worthy cause. For more information, see http://blink.ucsd.edu/buy-pay/responsible/environment/writingbrigade.html
