    InkCycle Announces Ink Cartridge Recycling Index to Divert More Than
    700 Million Ink Cartridges From Landfills

    Index Measures Harmful Ink Cartridge e-Waste
    KANSAS
    CITY, MO, Jun 2009 — InkCycle’s new cartridge measurement tool
    diverted 394 tons of toner and ink cartridges from entering landfills
    last year (2008). To request grenk, remanufactured ink and toner

    Ink
    cartridges are considered e-waste; they are harmful to the environment
    and can take eons to decompose, according to IdealBite.com (http://www.idealbite.com/tiplibrary/archives/getting-inked).
    Companies and consumers should recycle their old ones, and when ink
    cartridges are purchased, go with refilled ones, which work just like
    conventional cartridges. Facts from Ideal Bite:

    –  Smaller landfills. An average ink cartridge takes about 450 years to
    decompose
    –  Conserving oil. Recycling an ink cartridge can save 3 quarts of oil

    Consumers and businesses can also learn about recycling by viewing Earth911.com’s video about reduce, reuse, recycle: http://blog.earth911.com/2008/11/17/173/.

    According
    to Brad Roderick, executive vice president of InkCycle, “It’s time
    consumers and businesses know how much their green initiatives are
    really saving the planet.” In 2008, InkCyle recycled, repurposed or
    converted almost 394 tons of material by measuring waste. Companies
    that are green or want to become green can measure their recycling by
    utilizing grenk’s Carbon Neutronics Index with InkCycle, which offers
    businesses an accurate account of their landfill waste. To learn more

    Currently,
    more than 700 million ink cartridges are used in the United States
    annually, according to CURE Recycling, and only a small fraction of
    empty ink cartridges are recycled.Powered by InkCycle, grenk created
    the Carbon Neutronics Index(TM), a software program, which calculates
    the tonnage of e-waste companies are keeping out of landfills by
    choosing grenk. Carbon Neutronics is made up of three words: Carbon +
    Neutral + Electronics. This powerful tool calculates the empty weight,
    not based on averages, but based on each and every specific cartridge
    model and provides a one-page certificate to quantify your green
    decision.grenk is a new line of remanufactured ink and toner cartridges
    designed to leave the smallest environmental footprint possible.
    Powered by InkCycle, grenk delivers brand name quality at a fraction of
    the cost.
