Commitment to Our Planet
Over 500 million OEM toner and inkjet cartridges are manufactured every year. If these cartridges end up in our landfills, this equates to almost 1,000 tons of unnecessary pollution that will enter our waste stream every day. In addition to this waste, upwards of three quarts of oil are consumed during the manufacturing of every OEM cartridge. This come out to more than 375,000,000 gallons of oil consumed every year to manufacture toner and inkjet cartridges.
Now on to the real bad news, many of these cartridges end up in cities like Guiyu, China where they incinerate or dissolve them with hazardous chemicals to extract residual metals. This process contaminates the local air, soil and groundwater and ONE in TEN children in Guiyu have birth defects due to this terrible pollution.
