The environment and the effect us humans are having on it has become a global issue that affects every industry.
The photocopier industry is one key industry that can help to maintain the planet as we know it and help to reduce the impact we have on our environment. Many of the photocopier manufacturers are putting into place processes that will reduce CO2 output by recycling toner bottles and looking to integrate as many bio-materials into their products as possible, as the following study shows.
Recycling is all about reusing waste material and if we don't recycle then the waste material ends up in land-fill.
According to the BBC, the UK disposes of more waste into land-fill than any other EU country. Traditional plastics tend have been estimated to take more than a thousand years to degrade according to the Timesonline.
With these statistics in mind, the responsibility to dispose of waste in an environmentally friendly way should be on every company’s agenda. Considering the majority of photocopiers, network printers and toner bottles are made from some sort of plastic, recycling is the only feasible way to dispose of your toner bottle or old photocopier while traditional plastics are still in use.
