Clean Out Your Computer

Clean Out Your Computer Day is a day to logically review, and delete old files and programs.

Most of us add programs and files to our computer with reckless abandon. After all, computers have huge storage capacity. Many of these files and programs are forgotten over time. Overtime they clog memory and cause confusion during retrieval and use of other files. And, some may slow down your computer.

Somewhere along the way, a (most likely) computer geek or service person, created this day as an opportunity for us to remember to cleanup and delete old and unused files.

So, get into the spirit of the day, and clean out the old computer.

Facts About the Environmental Impact of Printer Cartridges
It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new laser cartridge.
Almost 8 cartridges are thrown away per second in the United States alone!
In North America alone, over 350 million cartridges per year are discarded in our landfills, and that number increases by 12 percent annually!
Every remanufactured laser cartridge saves nearly 2.5 pounds of metal & plastic waste from being deposited in landfills.
A laser cartridge thrown into landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose. Some components made of industrial grade plastics will take over a thousand years to decompose.
70 percent of used printer cartridges throughout the world are currently being thrown out.
In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were stacked end-to-end; they would circle the earth over three times.
We Can Make a Difference!

Every single cartridge saved from a landfill makes a difference. This will not only protect our environment but save consumers thousands of dollars. Now imagine the difference when individuals, then organizations, then cities, then states and then nations start participating! That is Impact with Effect! At Cartridge World we are not only making a difference, we are changing the world!

Most printer cartridges can be refilled or remanufactured.
