Remanufactured printer cartridges are an environmentally friendly printing solution. They consume less materials and use fewer natural resources than single-use cartridges. It’s important to note that when a printer cartridge is remanufactured, it is a reused cartridge – a cartridge that would have otherwise ended up in an overburdened landfill. Reuse is the highest form of environmental responsibility and is superior to recycling in that it does not use non-renewable resources to breakdown plastic and metal. Multiple government agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, have stated that a printer cartridge and all its components should always first be evaluated for refurbishment. If refurbishment is not possible then responsible recycling should be pursued. *
