Epson Ink Cartridge Packaging Made of 100% Recycled Paperboard

Epson Printer Cartridges Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of superior performing desktop printing solutions, announced that it will save thousands of trees annually, decrease air pollution and eliminate nearly one million pounds of solid waste per year in its recent transition to 100 percent recycled paperboard ink cartridge boxes now available where Epson inks are sold in the U.S. and Canada.

“Epson is committed to environmental conservation, from our product recycling and donation programs to our recognized global sustainability efforts,” said Ron Mateas, corporate manager, Environmental Programs, Epson America, Inc. “Epson strives to be a socially responsible corporate citizen, and for the third year in a row has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, an indicator for leading companies in economic, environmental and social criteria.”

All Epson packaging for consumer retail ink cartridges in the U.S. and Canada will consist of 100 percent recycled paperboard that can also be recycled when empty. By converting to recycled paperboard instead of virgin paperboard, less solid waste will be produced. In addition, by diverting fiber that would otherwise go into a landfill, the CO2 that would be emitted from decomposition of the material in a landfill is avoided, resulting in nearly one million pounds of solid waste eliminated per year. This move also eliminates the production of waste water equivalent to over 17 Olympic size swimming pools per year.

Recycled paperboard is made from 100 percent recovered paper that has been diverted from the solid waste stream and collected, separated, cleaned and recycled for use. Production of the recycled paperboard uses 50 percent less energy than converting virgin grades of paperboard, resulting in a significant reduction in greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.
