Remember the "paperless society"? Remember how computers were going to save trees and the environment? It didn't exactly happen that way. In fact, we're printing, copying and faxing now more than ever. Used ink and toner cartridges are clogging landfills to the tune of 360 million cartridges per year!
Once in the landfills, the industrial grade plastic in cartridges can take up to 1000 years to decompose. Meanwhile, residual inks and toner seep into our soil and groundwater.
Cartridges are made of plastic, and it takes up to three quarts of oil to manufacture a single cartridge.
At Caboodle. we search far and wide to make sure empty cartridges don't end up in landfills.
