Press release from the issuing company
PALO ALTO, Calif. - HP today announced that more than 75 percent of its ink cartridges and 24 percent of HP LaserJet toner cartridges are now manufactured with “closed loop” recycled plastic.(1)
This milestone represents a 50 percent increase in the number of HP ink cartridges manufactured with recycled content in the last year, giving customers more options for purchasing cartridges made with recycled content.
As part of the company’s Living Progress strategy for driving human, economic and environmental progress, HP is identifying opportunities for action and innovation to create a better future. Through these innovations in plastics, HP is helping customers reduce their environmental impact and reduce the overall environmental impact of product use.
“Our customers want high-quality printed content for both business and personal documents—without breaking their budget or compromising their commitment to environmental responsibility,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet and Printing Solutions, HP. “From cartridges with recycled plastic to energy-efficient printing products and waste-reducing packaging design, we are offering customers solutions that make it easy for them to enjoy cost and resource savings in their everyday lives.”
HP’s industry-leading “closed loop” cartridge recycling process uses recycled plastic from returned HP cartridges as well as plastic from other sources, including recycled plastic bottles and plastic apparel hangers to create new Original HP ink cartridges.
Reusing engineered materials, HP has contributed to the “circular economy” by:
HP offers customers in 50 countries and territories free and convenient cartridge recycling through the HP Planet Partners program. Customers can return used cartridges through HP’s retail and reseller partners by dropping cartridges off at one of 9,000 drop-off locations around the world or find out how to return cartridges directly to HP by visiting www.hp.com/recycle. The site now offers region- and language-specific information and is optimized for mobile use, making it quicker and easier for customers to recycle used cartridges.
These advances join a portfolio of printing products and services that further enable customers to reduce their environmental impact:
This progress is part of HP’s ongoing commitment to bring our people and technology together to solve society’s challenges, empowering our customers—from consumers and small businesses to enterprises—to make more responsible choices when printing.
