Make Your Printing More Eco-Friendly


Have you ever hesitated before pressing the "print" button, thinking that printing might be a waste of paper and other resources which conflicts with your environmental principles? However, printing does not mean environmentally unfriendly. Try these tips to print in a more eco-friendly way.


1. Choose Reliable Remanufactured Cartridges

Remanufactured cartridges are toner cartridges and ink cartridges that have been professionally cleaned and refilled with toner. We believe that if you're environmentally conscious, you might consider choosing this type of remanufactured products to reduce plastic wastes and environmental pollution. In addition, their prices are usually much lower than the original cartridges.

However, there are some unreliable providers that provide inferior remanufactured products. If you need more reliable remanufactured cartridges, G&G is a choice you mustn't miss! G&G remanufactured toner cartridges, for example, control quality through an industry-leading 12-step manufacturing process. From the intake of empties through the assembly to the inspection of the final finished product and its packaging, every process is strictly monitored by Quality Control experts. OEM quality without OEM price Tag, that's G&G remanufactured products!


2. Purchase An Efficient Printer

Just like buying any other appliance, you can pay attention to the energy consumption of the printer. Low-energy devices will have less impact on the environment. You can also compare the specification of per-page print cost to determine which model will allow you to use the fewest volume of ink or toner powders —reducing waste while saving your money.


3. Keep A Watch On Printer Settings

Like the "draft mode" we mentioned in “Innovative Problem Solver: Reduce Printing Costs”, you can select this option when printing less important documents for internal use. Choose "black ink only" to save on colored ink when you print a black and white document. Some thinner fonts can also reduce the use of ink and toner, such as Calibri and Cambria. Finally, you can choose double-sided printing to reduce paper waste. These printer settings can save you a lot of wastes over time.

4. Use recycled paper

If you need to print something, using recycled paper is the greenest solution. Do you know that it takes 19,000 gallons of water to produce one ton of new papers? Recycled paper consumes far less water than ordinary paper. Using recycled paper can also reduce carbon emissions. And, of course, it reduces the amount of paper going to landfills.
