For many it’s tempting to buy a compatible cartridge for your printer rather than the branded version They are cheaper and look the same and some may think they are greener. But, there are hidden costs.

Here’s why you should think twice before purchasing a compatible cartridge:

By purchasing printer consumables from manufacturers such as Brother, Canon, Epson, HP, Konica Minolta and Kyocera you are directly supporting the recycling of cartridges and the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program, ensuring that zero waste goes to landfill and new recycled products are made from your old cartridge waste.
