Printer ink recycling has formed a major part of a housing firm's environmental programme. Two Rivers Housing, based in Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, launched its Environmental Action Group in 2009, according to 24dash.com.

It has looked at ways of improving business performance by creating green initiatives that fully involve staff in activities. Printer ink cartridges have been recycled, along with stamps and batteries, and alternative transport methods to work have been trialed.

Sue Barter, member of the Environmental Action Group, told the news provider: "Our group has been very successful in making small but significant changes to save energy, and helping staff to recycle in the office as they do at home."

Garry King, chief executive of the housing firm, added: "I'm proud that our staff are taking onboard the message of recycling and championing ideas enabling our organisation to become greener and more energy efficient."

Earlier this month a blogger suggested that finding alternative ways to get hold of printer ink, such as buying remanufactured cartridges, would be a good way for businesses to save money.
