We know that you care about the environment. Here are some of the ways you can make a difference by purchasing cartridges from Inkfarm.com
Buying Remanufactured Cartridges
- Every year, 350 million cartridges are thrown out and wind up in landfills. While that is a lot of waste, many of these cartridges are being recycled and resold with new ink. These remanufactured cartridges
not only reduce waste but also help to offset some of the green house gas emissions created in producing them. Manufacturing new cartridges is very heat intensive and produces 16 times the weight of the cartridges in green house gas emissions. By using these recycled cartridges you are helping on both ends of the production cycle.
Warning: Not as tasty as regular peanuts.Using Biodegradable Packing Peanuts
- Petroleum-based packing peanuts used by most vendors can take hundreds of years to break down and can also be a choking hazard to pets, wildlife and children. For this reason we only use biodegradable peanuts in the vast majority of our packaging. These peanuts dissolve easily in landfills or even just water. So if your dog (or you for that matter) gets a little too curious about one of our boxes the choking hazard will be mostly eliminated.
Limiting Our Packaging
-Why put a box in a box? When we order from our suppliers we specifically request that all of our cartridges arrive at the warehouse the way you receive them: in only a sealed plastic wrap.
This does a couple of things for both you and the environment. It reduces shipping weight and cost and reduces the environmental impact. We have saved hundreds of thousands of boxes from needlessly being thrown away by making these simple requests of our suppliers.
These are just a few of the ways we work to give you everything you need while also doing our part.
