Strengthening its commitment to the welfare of the environment, Epson has now become a Full Partner with Planet Ark with Cartridges 4 Planet Ark, the highest possible level.
The ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program is an innovative recycling initiative that gives Australian consumers a free, easy and environmentally friendly method to recycle used printer cartridges.
“As cartridges are made up of a complex mix of plastics, metal and inks they represent a significant investment in resources. When they are disposed of into landfill these resources are lost. That’s why Planet Ark joined with Close the Loop and the participating manufacturers to set up the innovative ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program. This program collects and returns cartridges for remanufacturing and recycling – therefore keeping them out of landfill. That’s also why Epson believes in this program and wants to be a key partner in it.” – Craig Heckenberg, General Manager, Business Division at Epson Australia.
The program, in its 14th year, is about to surpass 36 million cartridges recycled. With over 4,000 ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ collection boxes across the country it’s never been easier to drop off of your old printer cartridge.
