2. 30/30 Shipping Bonus = Receive a $5 bonus for sending 30 cell phones OR 30 laser cartridges OR a combination of the two in one box, PLUS any other items on our pricelist.
3. Going forward, UPS Labels will be emailed to participants, unless otherwise requested.

CFK appreciates your efforts and understanding as the guidelines change to help reduce shipping costs. This change will further our partnership with you to maintain focus on sustainability while providing a better solution to reduce the impact to our Earth. We hope you too will be able to use this change to your advantage and help tell your story of how this new program really does lower our carbon footprint.

Ok…so your mother or grandmother had a bunch of old china…maybe they’re sitting in your cupboard for that “special occasion,” maybe the chipped remains are in a box in your attic, maybe you’re waiting to pass them on to your own children, maybe they’re in the pile of stuff to donate to charity. Check out what one fab artiste from Baltimore is doing to reuse these plates and save them from landfills (and dust bunnies)…
That’s right! The Broken Plate Pendant Company, found on Etsy.com, makes them into beautiful recycled jewelry. Send them your old wedding china, hand-me-down tableware, or that vintage plate you found at the thrift store, and they’ll turn it in to a purty piece of recycled art. Their website even has pre-made pieces to choose from if you want one in a hurry. Take a gander at this belt buckle…
Snag one of these gorgeous and recycled accessories here and give a truly unique gift to someone special (they even have cufflinks and “you complate me” friendship necklaces!)
