Ink and toner cartridges, as useful as they are, require a lot of energy and materials to manufacture. The plastic casing, the chip inside the cartridge, the ink itself; all of these essential components need to be manufactured and this process has a significant impact on the environment.
Every time you throw an old ink cartridge in the bin and purchase a brand new cartridge, this process has to be repeated. This wouldn’t be too much of an issue if just a few people threw their old cartridges away, however out of 1.3 billion inkjet cartridges used around the world annually, less than 30 percent are currently being recycled.
Recycling your old ink and toner cartridges has never been easier, and with the environment at such a critical stage, there really is no reason not to be recycling. So what are you waiting for? Recycling not only reduces the waste buried in landfills, but it also reduces the consumption of natural resources in the production of ink and toner cartridges.
