Cartridge World Environmental Awareness
Think Green with Cartridge World
Cartridge World operates in an environmentally responsible manner and we do everything we can to reduce a cartridge’s carbon footprint. Each year, in the UK, 45 million non-biodegradable printer cartridges are binned and end up in landfill sites*. Some of the plastics used to manufacture cartridges can take up to 1,000 years to decompose, leaving more than enough time for their toxic chemicals to spread into the soil and pollute the environment.
The 45 million cartridges binned each year could...
- Cover Old Trafford football pitch 17 times.
- Build a brand new Blackpool Tower.
- Cover Brighton Pier ten times, which would stretch 3 miles out to sea.
- Almost fill Big Ben.
- Stretch the length of Hadrian’s Wall 15 times - 73 miles!
To help reduce the impact of the millions of cartridges thrown away each year, Cartridge World is encouraging you to think green and refill or remanufacture your empty printer cartridges. Not only will you be saving yourself money but you’ll also be supporting sustainable development for the world’s limited natural resources.
Reduce your carbon footprint
An independent study conducted by innovative sustainability company Best Foot Award, discovered the cartridge remanufacturing process saves approximately 2.5kg of CO2 per cartridge compared to the production of a new cartridge**. The study also goes on to say, “the carbon footprint of remanufactured cartridge is approximately 2.8 kg, which is 2 kg (46%) lower than that for a new cartridge.”
Cartridge World’s refilled and remanufactured printer cartridges help save the environment but also offer you massive savings. Our premium inks and toners are matched to the original specifications of your cartridge and we assure you the print quality will be as good as new. We even offer a 100% moneyback guarantee if you aren’t happy - that’s how much faith we have in our products.
