If you’re constantly shelling out money for brand-new cartridges, not only are you wasting your money, but also you’re harming the environment. Here’s a closer look at why it doesn’t pay to buy brand-new cartridges for your inkjet printer.
Reason #1: Brand-New Cartridges Aren’t Cost-Effective
One of the main reasons brand-new cartridges make a poor choice is their high cost. Since some new cartridges cost more than the cost of your printer, regular printing becomes extremely expensive. Depending on the printer you have and the cartridges you need, you can pay $40, $50, or even more for the cartridges you need. Some printers have combination cartridges that include black and color ink. If one color runs out, you end up replacing the entire cartridge, even if the other colors are fine. It wastes ink and will have you purchasing new cartridges more often.
Reason #2: New Cartridges Contain Less and Less Ink
Not only are brand-new inkjet cartridges cost-prohibitive, companies are making cartridges that include less and less ink. While many of today’s ink cartridges are the same size as older ones, most of them contain less ink, yet companies still sell them at about the same cost. For example, the Epson T032 color cartridge, which was released back in 2002, is identical in size as the Epson color T089 cartridge, released a few years later. However, while the T032 contained 16ml of ink, the T089 only has 3.5ml of ink in it. Other companies have started reducing the amount of ink contained in their cartridges as well.
Reason #3: Plastic Cartridges are Filling Our Landfills
Unfortunately, choosing brand-new cartridges also causes harm to the environment. Around 300 million printer cartridges are thrown away every year, and a cartridge takes about 1,000 years to decompose. If you’re constantly purchasing new cartridges and throwing them away, you’re contributing to all the plastic waste in landfills, which does a great disservice to our environment.
Planet Green Remanufactured Inkjet Cartridges
The good news is that it’s possible to reduce your costs while improving the environment when you choose remanufactured inkjet cartridges. Remanufactured cartridges offer great savings when compared to brand-new cartridges, yet you’ll still enjoy excellent performance. You’ll enjoy high quality cartridges, since Planet Green doesn’t outsource their work – they have their own California-based assembly line, ensuring quality assurance through every part of the remanufacturing process.
Since remanufactured printer cartridges are made out of recycled empties, it reduces the plastic and toxic minerals in landfills, offering you another great way to go green.
Stop wasting your money on brand-new cartridges for your inkjet printer. Choose a cost-effective, eco-friendly option – remanufactured cartridges from Planet Green. You’ll enjoy a money-back guarantee, excellent customer support, and you’ll be purchasing from a company that helps create U.S. jobs.
