“There is No Reason to Not Use” Remanufactured Printer Cartridges

Remanufactured Printer Cartridges
Wiles Greenworld’s Tony Robins noted that remanufactured cartridges are a "stand-out" opportunity for businesses to save the environment.

An interview with E2B Pulse saw Robins, Sustainable Development Director at office supplies and services company Wiles Greenworld, discuss the options businesses based in London have to cut down their environmental impact, with remanufactured cartridges among the options he believes are obvious for London-based businesses to take up, and one of the "most popular" green products that the company provides to businesses.

Robins stated that toner cartridges "are the other opportunity within offices that stands out", as "frankly, there is no reason to not use remanufactured toner cartridges. All the relevant parts, the selenium drums and springs are replaced and it's just reusing the plastic case".

He also mentioned that "sometimes there's an issue with brand awareness and confidence and a default to thinking that an HP brand or a Canon brand is a guarantee that the product will work", but in terms of cost savings "it’s very significant to move to remanufactured cartridges and quality-wise, there is no reason for there to be an impact".

Robins notes that the company's attitude has "been to promote and supply products with the least environmental impact as the preferred option”, and that many companies in office supplies "might put out a global tender" asking for the "cheapest place [they] can buy" recycled products, which is often said to be China, but in Wiles Greenworld’s case, Robins believes that "if it's for the UK and that product is then shipped 5,000 miles, a product from a sustainable source provided locally may well have a lower environmental impact".
