It is important to take care of our environment because every day there are tons of garbage being thrown into landfills, a lot of energy wasted, and a lot of poorly disposed chemicals and technology damaging our surroundings. A lot of studies are being dedicated to preserving the environment, and such studies give us ways on how we can help preserve the environment, even in our small way. Businesses and consumers are encouraged to go green, or be eco-friendly, in order to save and improve the environment.
Ink cartridges and the environment
According to CartridgeFundraising.com, there are over 13 cartridges disposed in the U.S. every second. That’s hundreds of millions of empty cartridges in landfills each year that are made of materials that can harm the environment and do not decompose. As a consumer, there are numerous ways you can do your part in preserving the environment and one of them is to dispose of your empty ink and toner cartridges properly.
Staples recycle and save
Staples has an ink and toner recycling program that rewards its members when they bring their used cartridges into a Staples store. For every recycled cartridge, a customer gets $2 back in Staples Rewards. A customer can recycle up to 10 cartridges per month, and use the ink Recycling Rewards to buy anything from Staples by phone, in-store, or online.
To enjoy the Recycling Reward, you have to be a Staples member and you can do this by signing up at a store or online.
Do not just throw your empty ink cartridge into the garbage; instead, find ways you can recycle them like Staples’ ink recycling program. Remember that your earned rewards can buy you Staples ink cartridge refills, giving you more savings while you are doing your part in saving the environment.
