Let’s Go Green – Cartridge World

A discarded printer cartridge can take up to 1000 years to decompose. With over 900 million cartridges thrown out every year, a mountain of e-waste is steadily forming throughout our Earth’s landfills. Since printers are commonplace in every home office and business, it makes sense to reuse and recharge empty ink and toner cartridges. Implementing green practices at times can be costly but, by recharging printer cartridges at Cartridge World stores, consumers will help save the environment and save money at the same time. Customers simply get their empty cartridges recharged and find significant savings compared to buying new. Recycling bins are also stationed at all Cartridge World retail stores for the general public to drop off their empty cartridges. Businesses can also help protect the environment and save money by participating in the Business Direct program, which allows businesses to set up accounts with Cartridge World. Cartridge World then picks up the empty cartridges; recharges and delivers each back to the business. Businesses are saving hundreds to thousands of rupees each year by using Cartridge World’s recharged and refurbished and 100 percent guaranteed products. Naveen Rakhecha – CEO, Cartridge World (South Asia) says, “The basic Mantra for environment friendliness is Reduce – Reuse – Recycle, in that order of priority. Reduce – Print only when necessary. Reuse – Paper and cartridges. Recycle – Paper and Cartridges when they cannot be reused anymore. Cartridge recharging promotes Reuse & Recycle. As a matter of fact, many ‘new’ cartridges that you buy also do contain used or recycled parts.” The next time you see an OEM box, look carefully on the side of the box and you may see words to the effect of ‘For the effective use or resources we have implemented a cartridge recycling programme. This cartridge may contain reconditioned parts and remoulded materials.’ “So is it not better to recharge and reuse your empty cartridges and save money and the environment, while creating local jobs?” asks Naveen. “With our continued commitment to the mantra of reusing, we look forward to the day when reusing and recharging cartridges is as common as separating waste materials in our homes,” added, Naveen. Cartridge World [1] reports ink and toner cartridge facts: It takes about 3.4 litres of oil to make a new toner cartridge. Globally over 900 million empty cartridges are needlessly thrown into landfill every year and this is continuously increasing In 1997 United Nations estimated that 41,000 tonnes of plastic contained within printer cartridges were being dumped into landfill worldwide. Today that figure would probably be around 10,00,00 tonnes – considering the exponential growth printers have gone through and the fact that over 70% users throw away their printer cartridge after first use. A laser printer cartridge is said to take upto 1000 years to decompose naturally Every remanufactured cartridge saves nearly 3.5 pounds of solid waste from being deposited in landfills In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end; they would circle the earth over three times.
