How to make your printing more environmentally-friendly

Jun 2, 2021 12:38:00 PM / by Banner


If you'd like your organisation to play its part in the circular economy and improve its sustainability, your choice of printer cartridges could be one of the answers.

Here are six reasons why original HP cartridges are a good step towards more environmentally-friendly print.  

The circular economy

Buying HP cartridges means you are part of HP's closed-loop recycling process, which takes your used cartridges and brings them back to life, by using their plastic for the manufacture of new HP cartridges.


Indoor air quality

Original HP toner cartridges are designed to meet strict eco-label requirements for emissions, helping to maintain a healthy office environment.

Easy recycling

The HP Planet Partners recycling programme makes it free and easy to return used HP cartridges for recycling. HP cartridges returned through the HP Planet Partners Programme are never refilled, resold, or sent to a landfill.

Reduced waste

Due to HP's exceptional print quality, using original HP Ink and toner cartridges may result in less paper wasted on reprints.

Global leader in sustainability

Buying HP is supporting sustainable operations. HP achieves reduced energy use, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and minimised water use within its operations. It also motivates and empowers suppliers to enhance labour conditions, support human rights, and improve environmental performance at their production facilities. 


Social impact

HP works to improve access to quality of education, healthcare, and economic opportunities so everyone, everywhere, including disadvantaged populations and displaced people, can succeed in the digital economy and create better lives for themselves and families.
