Rose Brand will earn money to benefit The ESTA Foundation’s Behind the Scenescharity by collecting empty printer cartridges and used cell phones and recycling them for cash credit at Funding Factory. The fundraiser continues Rose Brand’s support of Behind the Scenes and the company’s commitment to the environment.

Rose Brand sales director Josh Jacobstein states, “We have a long term relationship with the entertainment industry and the hard-working people who make it all happen. With our recycling efforts, we will create a benefit to Behind the Scenes, and that’s a perfect way of continuing our ongoing support of the industry and people we work with.”

Deborah Sperry, also of Rose Brand, continues, “Rose Brand is on a journey to find the types of eco-friendly behaviors and activities that are genuine and sustainable. As the coordinator for Rose Brand’s green journey, I am pleased that our recycling of used toner cartridges and cell phones will result in a contribution to Behind the Scenes and our green goals.”

All laser and inkjet cartridges and cell phones collected through this effort are sent to Funding Factory, a company based in Erie, PA, that offers nationwide free recycling. Items are inspected, and the value for each collected item in Rose Brand’s account is then sent to The ESTA Foundation’s Behind the Scenesprogram.

Behind the Scenes is an initiative of The ESTA Foundation to provide industry members with financial support when they are seriously ill or injured. For more information about Behind the Scenes, to donate, or to apply for a grant, visit www.estafoundation.org/bts.htm.
