Does refilling ink cartridges help the environment?

Going Green By Refilling Ink Cartridges

Many of the major printer manufacturers have started a recycling program for ink cartridges as a way to limit the waste by-products produced by used cartridges and toners. However, that's not the only way that companies are getting involved in a greener environment. Refilling ink cartridges is another way companies are getting in on the environmental act.

In a partnership with the National Arbor Day Foundation, Cartridge World is issuing frequent buyer cards to their customers. Once a customer fills up the card, Cartridge World will pay to plant trees. The goal of the program is to plant 75,000 trees to replenish those lost by natural causes in the national forests. Customers who end up refilling ink cartridges through the program can feel good about keeping waste out of landfill,s as well as their contribution towards replacing trees in our national forests.
