Surfrider Promotion

Cartridges 4 Planet Ark has teamed up with Surfrider Foundation Australia, helping support their efforts to protect our oceans, waves and beaches while keeping printer cartridges out of landfill. For every cartridge recycled in May 2019, we will be making a contribution Surfrider Foundation.

As part of the partnership, we’re excited to announce an epic competition giving you a chance to WIN a handmade surfboard from D’arcy Surfboards. D’arcy makes boards for Layne Beachley, our Cartridges 4 Planet Ark ambassador and eight times world surfing champion.

What is extra special about this board is its unique design, created by Lousy Ink using 100% recycled cartridge ink, by Sydney artist Freda Chiu. With world champion Layne Beachley also providing an autograph, this is a truly one of a kind board.
