THINK GREEN! PRINT GREEN!
 Environmental and financial benefits of refilling laser printer cartridges


Printing is a huge drain on environmental resources! Imbued with the same throw-away mentality as so many of our activities, our printing habits often show little respect for the world around us - or indeed for our wallets!

Hundreds of millions of cartridges are discarded each year. Imagine cutting this waste by half. How? Well, it can be done!

Refilling is the answer. Refill your laser toner cartridge as many times as you can before discarding. After all, this makes sense. You would not send your car to the junk heap just because it ran out of fuel!

OK, your laser printer cartridge does have a considerably more limited life than your car - but the comparison holds good. Most laser printers can be refilled three or four times before other components show signs of wear and tear. You may need to purchase a reset chip along with your bottle of refill toner as printer manufacturers hate us trying to cut down on waste and will do all they can to encourage us to keep on throwing away those empty cartridges. As far as they are concerned, the more waste the better! Every cartridge or printer discarded means more money for them.
