- To protect our environment and conserve our natural resources
- To ensure that plastics, oils and other materials are reused over and over again
- Reuse is distinguished from most forms of recycling, where the good is reduced to a raw material and used in the making of a new good (eg crushing of bottles to make glass for new bottles).
- To ensure that we can recycle effectively and save money on recycled products
- To allow others to benefit from recycling such as our children and our future generations
- More than 1.1 billion inkjet cartridges are used annually around the world
- Approximately 3.5 litres of oil are required to produce each new laser printer cartridge and 90 ml of oil is used to produce each inkjet cartridge
- Each discarded empty laser printer cartridge adds approximately three pounds of waste to our landfills
- The plastic used in a typical cartridge is made of engineering grade polymers and is expected to take up to 1000 years to decompose
- More than 30 million inkjet cartridges are dumped each year in the UK (1800 tonnes) – the same weight as 18 Blue Whales
- Industry analysts estimate a spent cartridge can be reused or remanufactured between 3 to 7 times – every cartridge remanufactured is one fewer going directly to the landfill
- 20-30% of all cartridges sold worldwide are re manufactured
