Are inkjet printers good for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Inkjet printers have a higher rate of cartridge waste than laserjet printers, which means that more and more cartridges end up in landfills.  Inkjet cartridges only last for a few hundred pages, while laserjet cartridges can print thousands of pages, sometimes up to 10,000 for very high quality cartridges.  Inkjet-printed paper is also very difficult to recycle.  Dye-based inkjet inks separate from the paper in sticky globules during the pulping process, and are difficult to remove.  Pigment-based ink particles are simply too small to separate from the paper properly, and can contaminate other paper materials it gets placed with.
