The Shocking Statistics
When people think of recycling, the first thing that usually comes to mind is paper, aluminum cans and plastic bottles; using wind or water for energy.
* Two common items used daily are Inkjet Cartridges and Laser Toner Cartridges–these are easily recycled, but often NOT recycled. Each year over 300 million Ink and Toner Cartridges are thrown away and end up in landfills, this amount is equal to the weight of about 67,600 SUV’s. But, it gets worse–the average Toner Cartridge takes approximately 500 years to decompose and, it takes up to three quarts of oil to produce the average laser toner cartridge and 2.5 ounces to produce the average inkjet cartridge.
A few more facts to ponder:
On average, toner cartridges weigh an estimated 2.5 pounds and each new toner cartridge requires half a gallon of oil to make new plastic. One remanufactured cartridge keeps 2.5 pounds of metal and plastic out of the landfill and saves a half gallon of oil.
The average laser cartridge will add 2.75 pounds of plastic and metals to landfills.
Using recycled laser toner and ink cartridges to make new cartridges (i.e., remanufactured cartridges) reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 89%.
We are looking to create a partnership between Flex Imaging and your company to promote recycling at your office. By using recycled laser toner and ink cartridges, you are contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions and the reduction of waste in landfills that harm our environment.
