Combo Ink Cartridges – Better for the Environment and Better for Your Wallet

We explain how purchasing Combo Ink Cartridges is better for the environment and better for your wallet when you need to replenish your printing ink in our latest FMS Blog article.

Nobody likes a nasty surprise.

Whether its paper getting jammed in your machine or running out of ink halfway through an important print out, it can be frustrating at best when your printing supplies let you down.

And worse still, when purchasing new ink cartridges, the last thing you want is for it to have a negative impact on the environment and create more waste.

Making sure to purchase combo ink cartridges is the best way to save you time, money and provide you with a better piece of mind.

Here’s why.

Why Combo Ink Cartridges are Better for Your Wallet

As you’ll probably have come to learn or come to expect, printing ink sadly isn’t cheap.

In fact, it’s known to be one of the most expensive liquids in the world today.

Therefore, you may not realise it, but you could be costing yourself more money each time you need to restock on printing ink and opt to purchase a single black or colour ink cartridge.

So how do you get the best value for your money?

Well, to get the best deal, you only need to consider purchasing combo ink cartridges instead.

By combining a black ink cartridge and a tri colour or individual colour cartridge into one pack, it becomes apparent that the cost per pack will equal a lot less than when purchasing a black or colour ink cartridge on its own.

For a healthier wallet when restocking on printing ink, choose combo ink cartridges instead.

How Combo Ink Cartridges are Better for the Environment

We’ve covered the financial benefit of purchasing combo ink cartridges, but what are the environmental advantages?

Well, it all comes down to the amount of packaging that can be reduced.

Combo ink cartridges are packaged specifically to be able to hold several ink cartridges in a much smaller pack size.

So when it comes to both the environment and storage space at work or at home, this can be a considerable advantage to reap the benefits from.

Gone are the days of searching frantically through a cupboard or drawer full of ink cartridge boxes and unnecessary waste – instead, combo ink cartridge packs will last you longer and take up much less space too.

Combo ink cartridges mean you’ll always have the ink cartridges you need in one pack and in one place, all of the time.

Plus, when purchasing ink cartridges online, ordering one pack of combo ink cartridges rather than several packs of singular ink cartridges helps to cut down on the emissions produced by the vehicles making the delivery.

Lower delivery emissions = less of a harmful impact on the environment.

How HP Are Promoting a Sustainable Future

Recycled Ink Cartridges

During their World Partner Forum last year, HP put forward their sustainability pledge, which aims to address current environmental concerns and work towards a circular economy for their printing supplies.

Covering the use of recycled plastic in their ink cartridges, their Haiti charity project which transformed plastic bottles into new materials and the amount of closed loop recycled plastic used to create their printers, HP confirmed that:

Nearly 30% of closed loop recycled plastic has been used to create HP Envy and Tango printers
• Since 2000, over 199 million pounds of recycled content plastic has helped to create nearly 3.9 billion HP Original ink and toner cartridges
• And, more than 550,000 pounds of plastic which was considered to be ocean bound has been used within the wider HP product range (the equivalent of more than 12 million plastic bottles.)

Commenting more on their print sustainability pledge, HP’s CEO Enrique Lores explained:

“We are redefining the power of print to create a positive, lasting change for the planet, its people and our communities.

HP’s commitment to sustainability guides how we do business and drives that way our printers are designed, made and used.”
