LD Products's Commitment to the Environment
LD Products's mission is high quality, low impact. It is our responsibility to provide the highest quality remanufactured printer cartridges on the market to our customers, but we also have a debt to pay to the environment. Every company has a footprint, and at LD Products, we take our obligation to reduce our impact on the earth very seriously. With several initiatives in place for reducing waste, the use of nonrenewable resources, and energy, we are helping repay our debt to the planet and creating a healthier environment for all of us.
The Impact of Printer Cartridges on the Environment
Ninety percent of ink and toner cartridges are recyclable. This is the good news. The bad news is that 80 percent are thrown away. Americans discard more than 300 million ink cartridges every year. You wouldn't throw money in a landfill, nor would you pour oil, but that is what we are doing when we throw away printer cartridges. We waste over $450 million and 4.7 million gallons of petroleum. Millions of tax dollars that are used for landfill management are literally thrown away. In addition, ink, toner, and chemical additives filter into our water supply, and the plastic and metal used to construct the cartridges do not degrade. The impact is devastating to both to our budgets and our planet.
What Does This Mean for the Earth?
Discarding printer cartridges results in a tremendous amount of waste. We are wasting energy, nonrenewable resources, money, and the opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment.
Our Solution
The remanufacturing of ink and toner cartridges provides a significant reduction of waste and pollution, and this is only the beginning of our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment. We seek to make every aspect of our business more energy-efficient and eco-conscious.
