Remanufactured Printer Cartridges and the Environment — A Sustainable Partnership

Created: March 23rd 2021 By: Clover Imaging

A wild and natural environment is part of Canada’s identity, so it is no surprise that environmental concerns frequently turn up as targeted election issues each year. Canadians are deeply concerned about these issues, and the data shows that eight out of 10 Canadian consumers think products that feature recycling or energy efficiency are beneficial to a more sustainable future.

And yet, 85% of Canada’s plastics end up in landfills, with just 9% recycled and the rest either incinerated or scattered across the landscape as litter.

With 4.6 metric tonnes of plastics being consumed and a majority of plastic waste generated coming from packaging, electronics, computers, and automotive parts, there is a real need to get serious about reducing the amount of this material being distributed in landfills.

One simple and sustainable way to accomplish this is to choose remanufactured printer cartridges when sourcing supplies for your office equipment.

For example, every remanufactured laser cartridge keeps up to two pounds of plastic and metal from the landfill, keeping nearly 38,000 tonnes of waste out of the environment each year. However, there are many other advantages to examine when considering remanufactured printer cartridges and the environment.

Remanufactured Printer Cartridges and the Environment: A Perfect Pair

While selecting a remanufactured printer cartridge over a single-use cartridge (typically referred to as Original Equipment Manufacturer or OEM) may seem like an insignificant change for most organizations, this small switch in the way you do business can have an enormous impact on our natural resources.

Among the many advantages of opting for remanufactured cartridges are:

  1. Reduction of Pollution and Waste in Landfills

Every ink and laser cartridge that is tossed into the trash adds about two pounds of waste, both metal and plastic, to our landfills. When you consider that this waste can take up to 1,000 years to adequately break down, you begin to understand the powerful impact eliminating these items from circulation can have on the health of our planet.

To date, Clover Imaging Group(CLOVER IMAGING GROUP), a leader in the production of high-quality remanufactured cartridges has successfully diverted 227,500 tonnes of waste from landfills.

  1. Conservation of Resources and Reduced Carbon Footprint

Remanufactured toner cartridges conserve vital natural resources by reducing the amount of new material necessary to produce each cartridge. For example, when compared with a national brand equivalent, a remanufactured toner cartridge consumes 79% fewer materials and 44% less natural resources while demanding 48% less energy during the manufacturing process.

And a recent study by Best Foot Forward has shown that the carbon footprint of such a cartridge is 46% lower than that of a new cartridge.

  1. Responsible Recycling

Producers of high-quality remanufactured cartridges such as Clover Imaging Group provide two-fold benefits for the environment throughout the product life cycle.

First, each empty cartridge is evaluated to see if it can be remanufactured, which is possible about 3.5 times. This careful assessment reduces the number of nonrenewable resources necessary to produce each cartridge.

Then, cartridges which do not meet Clover Imaging Group’s high standards for remanufacture are harvested for viable components or recycled to create other products. By modeling production of these cartridges on a circular economy, companies like Clover Imaging Group can help eliminate waste and reduce environmental impact for a more sustainable tomorrow.
