The Hidden Cost of New Laser Toner Cartridges

Buying new laser toner cartridges can be expensive and costly to the environment. HP laser toner cartridges, as well as other brands, are made from new plastic.

The new plastic comes from petroleum. The petrochemical industry creates billions of dollars worth of polymers and plastics every day. The big focus has been on reducing oil and gasoline usage, in order to reduce petroleum usage.

But, by reducing the number of petrochemical products (plastics) that we use, we can reduce petroleum usage, too. Some estimates indicate that remanufactured cartridges can save over 200 million gallons of oil, every year.

If you want a cheap laser toner cartridge, there is nothing less expensive than the remanufactured varieties. They cost as much 60% less than the “all new” OEM products.

Supposedly, HP laser toner gives you more brilliant colors than other brands. But, if you did a side by side comparison between something printed with a new cartridge and one printed with a remanufactured cartridge, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference. Some people pick the remanufactured print, every time.

Although the remanufactured cartridges cost less, the highest quality inks and toners are used. The quality is much higher than what you get in the do-it-yourself refill kits.
The remanufacturers take the used cartridges and clean them thoroughly. They check for damage or imperfections. In most cases, they are guaranteed to satisfy.

Of course, some remanufacturers are better than others. A company might use cheap laser toner rather than a high quality selection to refill a cartridge.

It is always a good idea to shop around. If you are unhappy with the quality provided by one remanufacturer, try another. It is worth your time and effort to save fossil fuels, not to mention your hard-earned money.

Every laser toner cartridge should be tested by the company and then sealed before being shipped to your door. This is something that you should be able to learn about at the remanufacturer’s website.

The big companies like HP and Dell might disagree, but people that have used the remanufactured ink cartridges are happy with the quality and thrilled with the price. We also like to go “green” in every way possible.

If you are like us, you have recycling bins for plastic, aluminum, glass and other items. You spend a great deal of time sorting through these products, because you believe recycling is important.

Instead of buying a new cheap laser toner cartridge from some off-brand company, try a remanufactured one this time. You’ll be glad that you did.
