HP Announces Environmental Milestones

HP has announced several milestones in the company’s drive to decrease its carbon footprint and offer products that enable customers to reduce their environmental impact. As part of these efforts, HP is helping customers by reducing waste through ink cartridges packaging. Currently, HP has produced more than 1 billion ink cartridges manufactured with recycled plastic.

HP has developed manufacturing processes that use recycled plastics, including HP ink cartridges and plastic water bottles, in HP ink cartridges to deliver an estimated 22 percent reduction in carbon footprint and a 69% reduction in total water use when compared with using virgin plastics in the manufacture of 1 billion HP ink cartridges. Recycling efforts by customers and HP have kept approximately 1.3 billion plastic bottles and 160 million HP ink cartridges out of landfills.

HP is improving the efficiency of its recycling processes. The recycled plastic used in HP ink cartridges produced in 2010 and beyond is estimated to reduce total water used in plastics production by up to 89%. You can help reduce your carbon footprint by recycling your HP cartridges through the Cash for Cartridges recycling scheme, where we re-manufacture your old ink cartridges, keeping them from being thrown into landfills.
