Small companies now want to use ink cartridges in greener ways, as more firms look to lower their impact on the environment, a study has suggested.

It was also found that 72 per cent of small businesses are looking to lower their carbon footprint by reducing waste, while 61 per cent are looking to buy energy-efficient products and 60 per cent are opting to buy recycled items, according to the Office Depot Small Business Index.

Ink was particularly put under the spotlight in the study, with 60 per cent of small companies wanting to make their ink and toner cartridges greener.

Yalmaz Saddiqui, chief green advocate at Office Depot, said: "Customers can look at purchasing energy-efficient lights and computers, remanufactured printer cartridges and a wide range of greener supplies that cost less than less-green alternatives."

The research follows the news that more than 600 schools, colleges and universities in America are currently taking part in RecyleMania.

The event will see institutions compete to reduce the quantity of waste they send to landfill.
