A pen is mightier when recycled

ODP announces trade-in program

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Office Depot announced that, from April 17 through April 23, it is inviting customers to trade in their used writing instruments regardless of brand to any of its retail stores nationwide. In exchange for ten pens, pencils or markers, customers will receive a coupon toward a new product from Newell Rubbermaid Office Products. The collected instruments will be sent to TerraCycle to be turned into new office supply products ranging from trash cans to desk organizers.

“More than ever, our customers are aware of the choices and behaviors that impact the world around us, and as a global provider of office products it is our responsibility to offer green solutions to contribute to a cleaner and healthier community,” said Steve Mahurin, EVP merchandising Office Depot.
