Costs and benefits of remanufactured cartridges
Costs and benefits of using remanufactured cartridges
Research has shown that if local councils and large companies/organisations switched to using remanufactured cartridges instead of original branded cartridges they could save over £1.5 million a year and reduce their carbon footprint by up to 355 tonnes CO2.
The average cost of an original branded toner cartridge is roughly £50; where as the average cost of the remanufactured version would be around £25, half the price! Remanufactured cartridges often contain more ink than their original counterparts meaning the cost per page could be less than 5p!
Another big advantage of using remanufactured ink cartridges is their low carbon footprint. An original branded cartridge produces approximately 7kg CO2 as opposed to the mere 1.6kg CO2 used to produce a remanufactured cartridge. When a toner cartridge is recycled it means it will not end up in landfill, it can take 100 years for a toner cartridge to fully decompose.
When you think about the massive cost savings, higher page yields and green credentials, it makes sense to switch to using remanufactured cartridges from now on!
