It’s easier to reuse office supplies and equipment than you might think. The devices themselves, as well as all their parts, are built to last. Why not reuse them?
For example, the US uses 375 million toner cartridges each year. Each cartridge puts the equivalent of 10.6 pounds of carbon dioxide into the air with its production. Composed of metal and plastic, these cartridges are designed to withstand the rigors of the printer. However, their durability makes them equally difficult to break down in the landfill. Fortunately, however, the average cartridge can be reused four to six times.
There are many advantages to reusing consumables and equipment. We routinely find that:
Remanufactured cartridges are cheaper but produce the same quality (and sometimes a higher yield!).
Printers and other office devices can be refurbished and perform at the same high standards as the originals.
Where it’s not possible to reduce, we reuse. And we still deliver the same high-quality service to our clients.
People, Planet, Profit.
We believe that it’s possible to create a profitable and sustainable business which is good for people, the community and the environment.
Furthermore, many of the efforts we take to maintain a green office space produce cost savings which we then pass on to our customers. Sustainability isn’t just good for the planet. In the end, everyone benefits.
We also help companies develop green workflow processes and office technology solutions. Contact us today to get started with a sustainable office technology strategy that produces cost savings, a reduced carbon footprint and an increased commitment to environmental responsibility.
