Eco-Cartridge / Product design


Every year 75,000 tons of ink cartridges end up in landfills. Taking up to 450 years to decompose, the Eco-Cartridges are a big step towards a more sustainable printing system. By changing our methods of manufacturing to a more natural process without compromising its function, we help ensure quality of life for generations to come.

Created from a single sheet of recycled cardboard and biodegradable components, Eco-Cartridges are inexpensive to manufacture and require no additional packaging to ship and sell. From store shelf to printer, just remove the protective covering and insert it into the printer as you would any other cartridge.
