Environmentally Conscious

Environmentally Conscious

Part of our mission is to help reduce our carbon footprint through our Compatible laser cartridge program and through the use of recycled Jan/San products. We are proud to say it’s through our efforts and those of our clients that we are able to recycle an estimated 10,000 cartridges a year. Considering the facts about laser cartridge production and disposal, we are continually striving to increase our recycling efforts.

Facts

  • It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new laser cartridge.
  • 70 percent of used printer cartridges throughout the world are currently being thrown out.
  • Almost 8 cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States alone!
  • In North America, over 350 million cartridges per year are discarded in our landfills, and that number increases by 12 percent annually!
  • In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end, they would circle the earth over three times.
  • A laser cartridge thrown into landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose. Some components made of industrial grade plastics will take over a thousand years to decompose.
  • Every remanufactured cartridge saves nearly 3 and 1/2 pounds of solid waste from being deposited in landfills.
  • Not only are the savings to your company upwards of 40% versus name brand cartridges, it’s your chance to do your part for the environment in the same way the majority of our customers are.
