> >
> >Dear Epson people:

> >I have just seen a release dated 9/14/04 saying:
> >
> >>"Educational and nonprofit organizations can earn points by collecting
> >>genuine Epson ink cartridges and sending them to FundingFactory for
> >>recycling. The cartridges will be converted to energy through an
> >>environmentally sound incineration process at a licensed waste-to-energy
> >>recycling facility."
> >
> >There are at least two problems with this:
> >
> >(1) Incineration is not "recycling;"and
> >
> >(2) Noting is "converted to energy" in an incinerator.
> >
> >Thus, you are engaging in two major misrepresentations about an issue
that
> >is important to our members. Please be advised that we intend to provide
> >this information to our members and suggest that they might avoid
purchase
> >of Epson produces until the situation is corrected.
