It also applies when your buying anything. Why do you buy these things? Is it for your self or for any particular reason? There is a reason why you need to buy them, and that is you need it for purpose. For the benefit of our environment, that is one major purpose where i dedicated my blog, to promote eco-friendly materials and products that you shouldn't hesitate of using.
Recycled and remanufactured products are valuable stuffs for me. I'm always enticed by these products that promote eco-friendly living, environment friendly lifestyle, nature beneficial products and so on. We can always say that money is more valuable than anything based on our economy. And to spend your money on such substandard products is a total waste of earnings. So its always important to check the value and quality of products that you consume and also their environment impact.
It's a sad reality that there are a lot of lurking illegal stuffs and substandard products promoting false information and selling products that don't deserve to be purchase. Buy with a purpose, make secure to get what you deserve from the money you spend, so you won't end up regretting what you spent. One example of spending your money wise for a very needed purpose is buying cartridges for your printer, and this to consider is a recurring expense that you should have to think of a way to lessen the expense without comprising the quality. The thing that might make you doubtful is the word ‘remanufactured’ as you might think that it will provide low quality output. Well, lots of people have this feeling, so it’s normal to think like that.
Based on a study conducted by StopWaste, there are such environmental benefits from using remanufactured toner cartridges :
- A typical toner cartridge contains 97% of recyclable material.
- It will take at least 1,000 years for an average 3 pound toner cartridge to decompose.
- About 5 to 9 pounds of raw virgin materials are required to manufacture a new toner cartridge.
- Approximately 3 quarts of oil is used in the creation of a new toner cartridge. So by purchasing a remanufactured version of a toner cartridge, the potential benefits are huge.
You get more in return, you have enough of what you spent. By purchasing remanufactured cartridges, you gain more benefits. There's always a perception that remanufactured and recycled cartridges can't produce quality output. But the truth is, they give quality output as the original cartridges produce and yields the same.
