Most of us try and recycle, whether it’s at home or in the office – from paper and cardboard, right through to plastic and of course print cartridges. However, recycling the latter can seem like a lot of hassle, therefore reducing recycling efficiency.
So, to help reduce customers environmental impact HP have announced that more than 75% of its ink cartridges and 24% of their Laser Jet toner cartridges are now manufactured with “closed loop” recycled plastic. This means that those cartridges which contain recycled plastic will be made up of 50-70% recycled plastics, whilst those HP Laser Jet toner cartridges will be made up of 10-20% recycled plastic.
The actual plastic used is made up of recycled HP cartridges as well as other sources, including recycled plastic bottles and plastic hangers to create brand new ink cartridges.
In the process of creating more sustainable products HP have kept 566 million returned cartridges out of landfill and have manufactured more than 2 billion original HP ink and toner cartridges made with recycled parts.
