If you are looking for Green printer-copier choices. If you are purchasing a copy machine. It is important to consider the environmental effects copier will have throughout its life. From manufacturing, packaging, usage, shipping and disposal. Let’s consider that for each 10-story building there were five companies per floor, each with four copy machines. That is a total of 200 copy machines per building. Now if one were to take that number and multiply it by the number of buildings in even one city, that is a lot of copy machines! If only 1,000 companies were to purchase used copiers, or donate their used ones when purchasing new or leased copiers, imagine the ‘green’ impact that could have on the environment!
Buying a pre-owned copy machine eliminates the need to purchase the raw materials needed for producing a new copier. This in effect reduces the end-users carbon footprint. If you consider the amount of carbon produced while manufacturing and shipping a new machine, purchasing a pre-owned one makes perfect sense.
Purchasing used copiers reduces wasteful dumping of perfectly serviceable machines. It takes decades, at the very minimum, for the plastic material that houses an ink cartridge to decompose. It’s important that printer ink be disposed of properly because it is non-biodegradable and toxic to the environment. Purchasing a used copier ensures that a copier does not end up in a landfill– in effect, reducing waste.
