Did you know that in order to make ink cartridges it takes alot of oil. Approx one barrel for every 50 cartridges. Times that by about 65 million (the amount of printer ink cartridges sold in the UK) and you understand why it's good to recycle.

By recycling your ink cartridges you can cut down the amount of oil used and also prevent ink cartridges from being dumped in empty landfill sites. Each year over 350million cartridges are thrown to landfill sites alone.

An Ink Cartridge can take between 450 to 1000 years to decompose.
