Sustainability + Toner = The Perfect Partnership for Your Green Initiative in 2020

Sustainability + Toner = The Perfect Partnership for Your Green Initiative in 2020


The year 2020 promises to be a milestone year for sustainability in the world of business.

In fact, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the fifth year that the United Nations has worked on its Sustainable Development Goals to bring enterprises around the world together toward the common goal of creating a more sustainable business environment across the globe.

And consumers are clearly on board, expressing preference for businesses that take corporate responsibility, green initiatives, and sustainability seriously.

While some businesses have already moved to more sustainable practices, others are slow to adopt green programs. In part, this is due to a fear that the move would cause additional expense that could lead to a rise in the price of their products or services, affecting their competitive edge.

Now, there is a superior way for organizations to incorporate green initiatives into their business processes that will not only boost their corporate profile, but also save them money.

The answer? Remanufactured toner cartridges.

Why Remanufactured Toner Cartridges Should Be Your Green Initiative of Choice


Don’t just talk about sustainability — incorporate it into your day-to-day business processes with the purchase of remanufactured toner cartridges in place of costly, resource-heavy OEM cartridges.

Remanufactured cartridges take a used OEM cartridge, clean and repair it, then refill it with high-quality ink or toner to conserve non-renewable resources and keep another cartridge out of our landfills.

Each year alone over 350 million cartridges are landfilled or incinerated in the United States, adding waste and toxic chemicals into our overburdened landfills. It can take as long as a millennium for a single cartridge to decompose, so the impact to the Earth is long-term.

When you purchase quality remanufactured cartridges you lessen the impact on our planet in many ways, including:

  • Consuming 79% less materials per cartridge
  • Using 44% fewer natural resources per cartridge
  • Providing a 51% smaller environmental impact per cartridge
  • Using 48% less energy per cartridge to manufacture

These significant benefits are in addition to the up to 30% savings you receive by purchasing remanufactured over OEM products.

Plus, the simple change of adding remanufactured cartridges in place of OEM brand to your print expenditures allows you to take those important steps toward sustainability.

Becoming more sustainable as a company is not only good for the health of our planet, it gives you a competitive edge that protects the health of your bottom line as well.

Tonerwise Sources the Most Sustainable, Highest Quality Remanufactured Cartridges


At Tonerwise, we want to make it easy for the clients we serve to be green. And we want your business to thrive. That’s why we source only the highest quality remanufactured cartridges available.

Our cartridges are created in North America, where we are intimately familiar with the supply chain from start to finish. Not only does this ensure product quality, it helps us contribute to our local economies through jobs as well as through purchasing power.

To further guarantee quality, we ensure our products are tested by third-party, independent laboratories — in this case, Buyer’s Lab (BLI), a leading global equipment test lab and consumer advocate, to evaluate page yield and reliability.

Here’s what they’ve found:

  • Zero failures out-of-box
  • Zero unusable pages
  • Average continued yields that exceed state yields
  • Densities comparable to OEM

With results like these, it’s easy to see that of all cartridge options, remanufactured cartridges are the best, and most environmentally responsible choice.

Not only do they provide outstanding quality and reliability, their design and creation centers around reuse rather than recycling. Each cartridge and its many components are evaluated for refurbishment first, to conserve our non-renewable resources.

As you can clearly see, at Tonerwise, we’re serious about sustainability. So serious, that we’re applying for B-Corp status, a status that will hold us to the strictest levels of accountability when it comes to social and environmental performance.

But we’re not just talking the talk — we’re walking the walk, too. Part of our green initiatives will include the purchase and use of remanufactured ink and toner in our own offices.
