Environmental:

Let’s face it, there are always some people out there that do not like charities or giving to charities.  Because of the environmental impact that cartridges have, we have produced some facts  so you can try another way with these people.  This sheet is available on our Resources Page. Why not use some of these facts on your Facebook or Twitter every few weeks to keep peoples interest.
