LexJet's New Inkjet Cartridge Packaging is Fully Recyclable
March 26, 2008 - Sarasota, Fla. LexJet has developed fully recyclable packaging for its line of remanufactured
inks for HP 5000/5500 wide-format inkjet printers. The recyclable packaging is the latest initiative in LexJet's
ongoing commitment to responsible environmental programs for its customers and the printing industry.
Participants in LexJet's Inkjet Cartridge Recycling Program who utilize LexJet Ink for HP 5000/5500 printers will
receive their recycled ink in the updated packaging. Everything contained in the packaging - including the box,
the bag, and the inkjet cartridge - is recyclable.
"LexJet's environmental philosophy is rooted in the 3Rs - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We also adhere to an
additional 3R ethical code regarding the development and presentation of our environmental initiatives and
programs - Real, Responsible, and Right," says John Lane, LexJet's vice president. "LexJet pursues
responsible and practical solutions - like our new recyclable packaging - that actually reduce the industry's
environmental impact while helping our customers and those who buy and use our customers' graphics with
high-quality, economical solutions."
Since 2005 LexJet has recycled more than 100,000 HP 5000/5500 inkjet cartridges. LexJet's Inkjet Cartridge
Recycling Program was recently expanded to include a broader range of cartridges for HP, Epson, and Canon
Participants in LexJet's HP 5000/5500 Ink program receive a $2 credit with each returned cartridge. Those
who recycle any of the other cartridges in LexJet's expanded Inkjet Cartridge Recycling Program do not
receive a credit. LexJet will ensure the cartridges and their components are properly recycled, reused, or
disposed of properly.
"After extensive research and examining the life cycle of a typical product in our industry, we felt the most
economical, and responsible path was toward recycling or reusing as much of our products as possible.
Therefore, we will continue to research and develop 3R-oriented programs for all of our product lines, from ink
to inkjet media," says Lane.
