Cartridge World Provides Small Businesses an Easy and Economical Way to Go Green on Earth Day and Every Day

World's Leading Ink and Toner Cartridge Refiller Celebrates Earth Day, April 22, 2011 with $10,000 'Go Green! Win Green' Contest, beginning April 1st

EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cartridge World, the world leader in printer cartridge refilling, provides a simple green solution for businesses who want to save money. As easy as changing a light bulb, reusing printer cartridges helps reduce waste in landfills while it also saves money. On Earth Day, April 22, 2011, when people everywhere are considering what they can do to protect the environment, Cartridge World offers a simple, quality solution than can have a significant impact.

"Each year, more than 350 million cartridges are discarded into our country's landfills," says Tom Fricke, Cartridge World's chief executive officer. "Earth Day is the perfect time to remind everybody that there is a better way to replace your ink and toner. Most printer cartridges can be refilled or remanufactured. Using Cartridge World products for ink and toner replacement not only helps the environment, but it can be substantially more affordable when compared to the cost of buying a new cartridge."

Consider these cartridge-related facts:

  • The number of cartridges discarded in North American landfills each year increases by 12 percent annually
  • An average of 8 cartridges per second are thrown away in the United States.
  • It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new laser cartridge.
  • A laser cartridge thrown into landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose. Some components made of industrial grade plastics will take over a thousand years to decompose.
  • Every remanufactured laser cartridge saves nearly 2.5 pounds of metal and plastic waste from being deposited in landfills.
  • 70 percent of used printer cartridges throughout the world are currently being thrown out.
  • In one year, if the world's discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end; they would circle the earth over three times.

Businesses can do their part to save the planet without risking quality, because Cartridge World products are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. "Our quality guarantee means our customers are able to feel good about doing their part for the environment and they can do it conveniently," says Fricke, "because most of our stores offer free pick-up and delivery. Cartridge World is committed to providing value, quality, and convenience."
