November 24, 2006, Newsletter Issue #39: Why should I use a laser toner refill instead of buying a new cartridge?

Tip of the Week

Conservation has become such a regular practice that the reasons for doing it are often lost by those who do it. For people who don't understand why it is so important to practice conservation by using a laser toner refill instead of buying newly manufactured cartridges, here is a brief explanation that anyone can understand.

First, remember what laser toner cartridges are made of. It takes almost a third of a gallon of oil, yes oil, to make a laser toner cartridge. By buying new cartridges instead of using a laser toner refill, you are unnecessarily using a non renewable natural resource.

Maybe it is easier to think of this is recycling. In essence, by using a laser toner refill, you are recycling your own toner cartridge. Not all recycling takes place in some plant or landfill. You can recycle and conserve at home or at your office by using laser toner refills instead of buying new cartridges when you run out of toner.
