Did you know that according to a Cone Communications study that up to 87% of consumers are motivated to do business with companies that advocate for the same issues that they care about?
Social responsibility has become a hot topic in the business world. Environmental stability has fast become a leading concern for business who want to not only do their part for the environment, but show their customer base that the business cares about the same environmental issues that they do. In order to do so, an increasing number of businesses both in the United States and internationally have established what are known as sustainability goals, that is to say, they’re endeavoring to have less impact on the environment (or even none) with the proof to back it up.
Xerox makes reaching your sustainability goals easier thanks to a handful of innovative options available to businesses everywhere. In today’s post, we’ll be taking a look at how and why your business should recycle their old printer cartridges as well as a unique way to help reforestation efforts and reach your sustainability goals with an organization called PrintReleaf.
Xerox Has Recycled Over 2.5 Million Printer Cartridges: How You Can Help Too
Thanks to Xerox’s participation in the Green World Alliance recycling program, Xerox customers have returned and recycled over 2.5 million printer cartridges and toner containers. Recycling cartridges is easy—if possible, Xerox asks that you recycle your cartridges locally as this even further reduces environmental impact, but if this is impossible or implausible for whatever reason, Xerox will also accept anything on their “Take Back” list (a full listing of all consumed products they’ll take back from customers without a fee).
From single items to full pallets, recycling your spent cartridges is an easy way to help the environment and to reach your sustainability goals. To learn more about recycling with the Green World Alliance program and for Xerox’s Take Back list, please visit this official Xerox page on the topic.
What is PrintReleaf and How Can it Help You Reach Sustainability Goals?
Xerox has partnered with the PrintReleaf organization, the developers of an innovative technology platform that allows your business to track and mitigate its paper footprint. PrintReleaf takes the data you submit (i.e., total paper usage) and “converts” it into trees in the real world.
Here’s how it works: for every sheet of paper you print, PrintReleaf will automatically help replant the same amount of paper used as trees in reforestation initiatives around the world. Once you’re set up, you’ll receive a certification from PrintReleaf, which you can use to show your customers and clients that your business has taken steps to become “paper neutral.”
