Help Us Save The Environment...
For several years Cartridges Direct have promoted the Ethical Recycling of Original Printer Cartridges at their EOL as a corporate citizenship criterion. Although EOL Printer Cartridges can be perceived as an environmental threat there is absolutely no need as the solution to ethical recycling is as easy as it is practical. In the next 5 years, Cartridges Direct would like to prevent 3 million ink cartridges sold in Australia from ending up in landfill - and we need your help!
70% In Landfill
Over 70% of the estimated 25 million printer cartridges sold in Australia each year, end up in landfill.
400 - 1000 Years
What’s worse, it can take up to 1000 years for each printer cartridge to fully degrade. That’s a long time!
In the USA, over 375 million cartridges are thrown away each year. Our mission is to work towards zero!
Cartridges In Landfill - The Real Statistics.
70% of the estimated 25 million printer cartridges sold in Australia each year end up in landfill. That is not just an environmental pollutant, but a waste of non-renewable resources. Not to mention that cartridge landfill is a known cause of cancer related deaths from carcinogens and one of the world’s largest culprits of global warming.
