Anyone that knows me, knows that printing is a last resort. However, sometimes it is a must in business, and if you have to print you should have an eco-alternative to do so! Here’s one that I have come across recently.
Go2PrintGreen is owned and operated by Ryan Perry who has been a Xerox Authorized Channel partner since 2001. Xerox is the sole manufacture of solid ink color printers, the Phaser 8560 and 8860. Solid ink printers have a number of key features over laser printers, but a key one is the fact they use a cartridge free design that eliminates the need for toner cartridges that need to be disposed of once used. Since there is no cartridge, there is little waste. In fact, solid ink printers generate 90% less waste compared to a color laser printer. Only 5 lbs of waster per 100,000 pages versus 57 lbs of waste for a color laser printer.
Additionally, resin-based solid ink sticks are completely safe and clean, and contain no solvents. Unlike toners, they cannot spill, leak or smudge on your clothes. Solid ink eliminates lasers indoor air pollution by eliminating the toner cartridge. Learn more details about environmental factors of solid ink printing.
If not printing is not an option in your everyday business, I encourage you to at least consider printing responsibly!
