Ink is Not Environmentally Friendly, so Remember to Recycle

Ink cartridges should not be thrown away because they are not environmentally friendly items. The better option, both for the environment as well as your pocketbook, is to recycle your used cartridges. At many office supply stores, you will receive a credit on new ink if you turn in an old cartridges. This credit is typically a couple dollars, which is not too much money, but it's still better than nothing. I used to do this all the time at Office Depot, Staples, and other brick-and-mortar stores. But there are many other options for recycling ink as well, which you can read about at Earth911.

Not long ago, I started purchasing my ink at online stores like Inkfarm. Initially, the reason I began doing this was because the prices seemed to be a few dollars lower than what I was used to paying. But then, I realized that such stores sell remanufactured cartridges. If you've ever wondered where your old, recycled cartridges go, many of them apparently end up at online stores like Inkfarm, which refills them with ink and resells the cartridge at a discount. Such cartridges, called remanufactured cartridges, is a great way for you to save some money, all while doing your part to keep the environment clean. As a bonus, you can also get Inkfarm coupon codes to get an even better price on the ink you buy online. The latest coupon codes can be found on many differen sites. When all this is taken into consideration, there is no real reason for you to continue buying your ink offline.

It happens very rarely, but I once received a refilled ink cartridge that did not work properly. That's why it is important for you to only buy refilled ink cartridges from a store that has a good reputation. When you buy from such stores, you are able to return the cartridges whenever there is a problem and receive a replacement.

One last way that I save money when I order ink cartridges over the Internet is by purchasing a sufficient quantity so that I receive free shipping. At many stores, shipping costs can easily run up your order by six dollars or more, so qualifying for free shipping is definitely an important benefit that you should try to get as much as you can.
