- If the empty cartridges that people throw away each year were stacked end to end they would be able to circle the earth – that’s over 38,400 kilometres!
- Printer Ink is dearer than Space Shuttle Fuel!! It’s true…….
- More than 30 million inkjet cartridges are dumped each year in the UK alone, the equivalent weight of 18 blue whales.
- Around 14,000 tonnes of ink and toner cartridges are dumped in UK landfill sites each year! We are only a small island, how long can this continue?
- Having your cartridge professionally refilled can save you up to 70% on your printing costs.
