Out of curiosity, I thought I would take a look at the last few months of entries and see what patterns emerged. After putting the posts through Wordle, I think that it projected a clear picture of the many causes and topics that Digitech supports. Take a look and let us know what you think!
Oftentimes, when I first speak to and interested client, the first question they ask is "will this be more work for me?". At the beginning, I found this question surprising, but came to realize that we’re so used to constant changes in technology that often require us to update our skills that we often equate any change with a whole lot more work and the need to relearn.
Working with Digitech comes with a surprise: We make life easier. One of our primary goals (other than saving the environment one cartridge at a time) is to simplify anything printer related for our clients and we do this by...
Remanufacturing cartridges minimizes waste and reduces the amount of petroleum based plastics that are sent to landfills and we’re proud to be a part of that. However, we decided that we could do more. We took our environmental initiative one step further by thinking inside the box. Packaging accounts for an estimated one third of the waste that is sent to landfills. We focused our waste reduction efforts on the how we packaged our toner cartridges and designed a system that allows us to reuse the packaging as much as possible.
Numbers can say a lot about a problem. The other day, I was surprised to find out that only a small minority of businesses and people use remanufactured toner cartridges. Replacement toner cartridges can be a sizeable cost to your business and to the environment. While many original toner cartridge manufacturers offer recycling options for their cartridges, we are rarely reminded that recycling should be the last environmentally-conscious choice and not the first. No matter which way you slice it, recycling is still a process that requires significant energy to breakdown materials, before using more energy to rebuild that material into something else. Whereas, remanufacturing actually reuses the existing parts and materials as much as possible thus saving both energy and waste.
The other week, I wrote an article that discussed the 6 questions that every toner cartridge remanufacturer should be able to answer. What I didn’t do was explain WHY these 6 questions need to be answered.
The remanufactured toner cartridge industry is unregulated. This is a big reason that we took an extra step at Digitech to guaranty our cartridge quality and became the only currently ISO-9001 certified cartridge remanufacturing facility in British Columbia. But, buyers should be aware that there are three simple ways that cartridge manufacturers can cut corners.
