Using remanufactured printer and toner cartridges can be a way to reduce waste and help the environment, it has been stated.

According to PRWire, over 350 million empty printer ink cartridges are discarded to landfill every year. And when you think that each ink cartridge can take 1,000 years to decompose, the environmental impact is staggeringly clear.

The amount of pollution created is immense, so consider buying remanufactured printer ink cartridges, the news source suggests. They can also be much cheaper than branded ink cartridges.

And don't be put off by the fact many ink sellers are based online. Don't be afraid of asking an online ink cartridge seller such as us here at Internet-ink about their products.

Finally, see if an ink cartridge supplier offers a recycling programme such as ours. Many do, the news source says:

"Many programmes have been implemented to encourage printer ink recycling. They will recycle them for you and may even give you store rewards for doing so."

A blogger on Boosh News recently said using black ink could be a good way to save money on ink cartridges.
