    HP Canada Makes Recycling Easy

    Company celebrates Earth Day by launching programs committed to the

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 05 – HP  today announced several
    environmental programs that make recycling simple and straightforward for
    consumers, enterprises and small to mid-size businesses and employees. Among the
    newly launched initiatives, HP introduced an Envelope-in-the-Box return and
    recycling program for select HP inkjet print cartridges to Canadian consumers.

    HP’s Envelope-in-the-Box program makes HP inkjet cartridge recycling even
    more convenient for customers. Canadian customers receive a pre-paid postage
    envelope in select HP Vivera inkjet cartridges, including HP No 94 Black Print
    Cartridge, HP No 96 Large Black Inkjet Print Cartridge, HP No 97 Large
    Tri-colour Inkjet Print Cartridge, HP No 99 Photo Inkjet Print Cartridge and HP
    100 Gray Photo Inkjet Print Cartridge.

    Other empty HP ink cartridges can be sent to HP free of charge for recycling
    using HP’s online recycling program, allowing customers to order a pre-paid
    envelope sent directly to their home or business. Every HP LaserJet print
    cartridge box has always included recycling instructions and a pre-paid shipping

    Additionally, Canadians can continue to recycle their hardware conveniently
    through HP Canada’s online recycling program (www.hp.ca/recycle).

    Since the conception of HP’s Planet Partners recycling programs in the late
    1990s, more than 91 million HP LaserJet and inkjet print cartridges have been
    returned and recycled worldwide.

    Small and mid-size businesses are also encouraged to recycle through
    PurchasEdge, a rewards program allowing customers to earn points towards free HP
    products and services for purchases of HP hardware, LaserJet and inkjet supplies
    (enrollment criteria must be met). Beginning this Earth Day, PurchasEdge members
    will also earn PurchasEdge points for recycling original HP cartridges through
    the HP Planet Partners program.

    “Environmental sustainability is a key element of HP’s global environmental
    citizenship, and it is imperative for long-term success,” said Ralph McMillen,
    vice president of Environmental Programs, HP Canada. “Canadians already have
    sophisticated non-technology recycling habits, and we are thrilled that
    Canadians can now recycle electronic products just as effortlessly through these
    new HP programs.”

    HP Canada employees are also celebrating Earth Day. Offices across the
    country are taking part in community clean-up events in nearby green spaces.
    Earth Day is also a chance for HP Canada employees to recycle their personal
    electronics products through its Employee Recycling and Take-Back program.

    In 2004, HP recycled more than 120 million pounds of used computer hardware
    and print cartridges globally, bringing HP’s cumulative total since 1987 to 616
    million pounds – more than halfway towards meeting the company-wide goal to
    recycle 1 billion pounds by 2007.

    HP’s Planet Partners return and recycling service (www.hp.ca/recycle)
    provides consumers and businesses around the world with access to a variety of
    hardware and print cartridge product disposal options, including recycling and
    trade-in. HP’s Planet Partners return and recycling service accepts any brand of
    computer-related hardware, such as desktop PCs, notebooks, monitors, ink and
    laser printers, PDAs and general networking equipment, as well as HP inkjet and

    Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2005. HP is also the proud recipient of
