ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS AT OUR MANUFACTURERS

All the leading printer manufacturers have an environmental program for their ink and toner. The programs are addressing both general consumers and corporate users - private and public.

The programs help to reduce the volume of empty toners and inkjet cartridges that are thrown away. 

Therefore, it is important that you buy original supplies and get your customers to use our manufacturers' environmental programs.
