Did you know that ounce by ounce, printer ink now costs far more than the world's finest perfumes and wines? Even so, most printer owners are still consume more ink and paper than they really need, bleeding money out of their pockets and into the environment as pollution.
Today, the average home and business user consumes thousands of pages of paper, and several annual replacements of ink and toner per year. In addition to the physical costs and financial impacts of printing (paper
wastage, and unnecessarily high ink and toner usage) the impact upon the environment (trees required to produce paper, emissions created as a result of producing paper/ink/toner, excess packaging resulting from ink/toner, and unnecessary ink/toner leaching into the environment) is staggering.
