Are you looking for a more eco-conscious solution to your school’s printing problem?
It is no secret that many of the common practices in our homes and businesses are damaging to the environment. With such an increase in awareness of the harm and impact different practices can have on the world around us, it is no surprise that in both our school and private lives, more and more of us are turning to eco-friendly or environmentally conscious solutions for our day-to-day challenges.
How can your school move to more environmentally friendly practices? One way is to change the way your school prints!
The Impact of Printing on the Environment
One of the biggest sources of pollution from printing comes from the incorrect disposal of ink and toner cartridges. Printer ink and toner can be dangerous to the health of human beings, but we would need to be ingesting the ink for it to really have an impact on our personal health.
Printer ink, toner, and the plastic cartridges they come in have a huge impact on our environment: from the residual chemicals (or volatile organic compounds) found in ink and toner leaching into soil when these cartridges are disposed of in landfill, or even the non-biodegradable plastics in the cartridges themselves that will take thousands of years to decompose. The implications of repeatedly throwing out old cartridges from your printer are bad news for the environmental conscious.
EcoPrinters: An Environmentally Friendly Alternative
By reducing the amount of old cartridges sent to landfill, your school can cut down on the harmful environmental effects of printing. One way of doing this is by switching to EcoPrinters.
EcoPrinters started as we have a deep desire to develop a more eco-friendly way of printing that would significantly reduce the impact printing has on our environment. We created a unique and innovative solution for schools that means they can ensure that the printing they do in their schools has as small an impact on the environment as possible.
Through our innovation in printing solutions, and our promise to continue to work towards greener and more sustainable printing practices, EcoPrinters makes a pledge to our customers to deliver:
Less Landfill: We guarantee that all of our consumables will last the lifetime of your printer. And our refillable bulk-ink system means that there are no empty toners, empty ink cartridges, or any cartridge packaging that needs to be regularly sent to landfill.
Fewer Greenhouse Gases: Did you know that on average 75% less greenhouse gases are produced when using our EcoPrinters compared to the amount of greenhouse gases that are produced by laser printers? It’s true! Our printers have less of an environmental impact that the laser printers your school is likely using right now.
Less Energy Consumed: Our EcoPrinters use on average 72% less electricity than the standard printer model you can find in most schools.
Zero Vehicle Emissions: We are committed to continually reducing the carbon footprint of our fleets. We are so passionate about our zero emissions policy that we have invested in electric vans for our fleet.
