I fished out a couple of ink cartridges out of the trash the other day, certain that I’d seen drop-off boxes for recycling someplace where we shopped regularly. But of course, they’ve sat and sat beside my desk, because I don’t want to carry them around.

Then I saw the mail back envelopes at the post office. Very cool. The postage-paid USPS envelopes can be used to recycle cell phones, PDA’s, smart phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, or up to four ink cartridges!

It’s a big program too – the envelopes were on a huge roll inside the cardboard advertisement box. As easy as ripping off a plastic bag for produce at the grocery store. You can read more about the greening of the USPS here.
