Give Back To the Environment This Christmas

Give Back To the Environment This Christmas

Christmas time is one of the most wasteful times of the year. And with 1.9 billion holiday cards making their way across the country between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, it’s reason enough to step back and think about the true costs of consumerism. While many people take the effort to recycle their paper goods, currently only 5% of empty inkjet cartridges are recycled or disposed of in a proper manner.

(PRWEB) December 9, 2005 — Christmas time is one of the most wasteful times of the year. Just think about it: wrapping paper, packages, boxes, cards, envelopes and more. Plus, many people are creating their own holiday cards on their computers now, increasing the amount of paper and printer cartridge waste to hit the landfills. And with 1.9 billion holiday cards making their way across the country between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, it’s reason enough to step back and think about the true costs of consumerism.

‘Tis the season for giving—and lots of it! The Christmas holiday season brings with it packages and presents, gifts and gadgets. Items are sent across the country to bring a smile to loved ones’ faces. But along with the festive cheer comes a mountain pile of waste that exceeds 25% of the average level for households—that’s roughly 1 million tons a week going into the landfills. (EPA)

While many people take the effort to recycle their paper goods, currently only 5% of empty inkjet cartridges are recycled or disposed of in a proper manner.

But there’s hope yet this Christmas. PrintCountry, a San Diego based company, (www.printcountry.com) offers an inkjet cartridge recycling program that takes your old, empty cartridges and recycles them for future use, rather than dumping them in the trash. Many people don’t think of the effects printer cartridges can have on the environment, but with more and more people owning their own printers, it’s cause for concern.

While selling quality printer supplies to the masses, PrintCountry wants to give back to the environment, and that is exactly what their recycling program is all about. While everyone contributes to the waste problem, everyone can also do their part to help out. Sending your empty inkjet cartridges, toner and even cell phones to the PrintCountry Recycle Program can help save the environment.

You can find out more about the program at: http://www.printcountry.com/recycling.htm

Each inkjet cartridge purchased from PrintCountry comes with a pre-paid recycling pouch. Just place your empty cartridge into the pouch, seal it and drop it in the mailbox. By making recycling so easy, it is PrintCountry’s hope that more people will give the environment a wonderful gift for the holidays—their awareness.

PrintCountry is a San Diego based e-commerce company that provides high-quality printer ink cartridges, toner cartridges and other printer supplies to a wide consumer audience.
