After an intense few days, UK recycling company, The Recycling Factory, is excited to announce that its charity partner, the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has selected a winner for its 2012 photography competition.

Earlier this week, the RSPCA judging panel announced that Jade Fotheringham’s photograph of her dog Lulu was the clear winner. Jade has won a refurbished iPad from The Recycling Factory, and in March the photograph will be published on over half a million RSPCA envelopes. Jade’s mum, Sandra Wallis, is ecstatic about the news: ‘We are all delighted that it has been chosen to be on the recycling envelope. We look forward to seeing Lulu on them!’

For the last 6 months, the RSPCA has invited supporters to send in photographs of their pets. The competition brief was simple: the charity’s favourite photo would appear on the next recycling envelope produced by The Recycling Factory. Organised and promoted by The Recycling Factory, an overwhelming number of entries was received – from dogs and cats, to hamsters and snakes.

Ben Feely, Corporate Account Manager for the RSPCA commented:

‘I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered and massive congratulations to Jade’s family for their winning photo. We were thrilled with the response and the standard was fantastic but we all fell in love with Lulu in this picture and finally selected it as the winner. Thank you so much also to TRF for running the competition and for providing such fantastic prizes. I am really looking forward to seeing the envelope with Lulu on it once it is printed in the spring.’

The RSPCA have branches across England and Wales, as well as staff and volunteers who work tirelessly, dedicating their time to support the charity’s vision of ending animal cruelty. Since forming its partnership in 2005, The Recycling Factory and RSPCA have together raised over £464,000 through the recycling of inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges and mobile phones.

The Recycling Factory donate 100% of the proceeds to the RSPCA and provide supporters with all necessary recycling materials such as freepost envelopes and collection boxes, and offer a free collection service for those recycling in large volumes. There is no cost for individuals or businesses who wish to become involved; it is an invaluable, free and easy way of supporting the charity.
