Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) October 15, 2009 -- Each year Inkjet Super Store promotes Earth Day with a special 24-hour sale on all re-manufactured ink and toner cartridges, but their interest in promoting a greener planet lasts all year around.
"We have a keen appreciation of the need for a proactive approach to reduce, reuse, and recycle," said CEO Ilan Douek. "We pride ourselves on our green attitude and we continually share recycling information and tips with our customers."
"We field many calls everyday from customers looking for recycling information, and our customer service department is trained to provide that information to them."
In addition, the company blog has a category devoted to recycling; including links to charities that accept used cartridges as donations.
More than 13 empty ink cartridges are thrown away each second in the United States. Worldwide, more than 70 percent of used cartridges are discarded. It takes about 80 percent less energy to re-manufacture plastic than to produce it new, and remanufactured laser cartridges use about half the amount of oil needed to make new ones.
"We all need to do our part to protect the environment," Douek said. "Promoting recycling is our way to help the planet remain green."
To continue their green stand Inkjetsuperstore.com announces a 5% off discount on all their re-manufactured printer cartridges for the month of October. All you need to do is use the discount code OCT5OFF.
