First Phase Data can help your office save money on print consumables while improving the efficiency of your print processes. Our team is committed to helping office managers and employers enjoy the benefits of world-class sustainability and recycling initiatives.

While some office managers see environmental sustainability as a cost of doing business, we see it as an opportunity to drive value. When you implement green initiatives that promote sustainability and reduce waste, it’ll ultimately lead to an increase in your company’s bottom line.

The truth is that sustainability and recycling initiatives can become value-generating assets for companies that implement them properly. Cartridge recycling and paper-use reduction are just two examples of the ways that sustainability puts priority on workflow efficiency.

How We Help Customers Recycle Printer Cartridges

For customers who purchase toner from First Phase Data, we offer a free toner recycling program. This program helps companies minimize their carbon footprint, reduce the number of toner cartridges that end up in landfills, and significantly reduce their print consumable costs. With free local pickup in Winnipeg and free shipping labels via email, it’s easy to be environmentally conscious.

Cartridge recycling is the easiest way businesses can implement value-added sustainability initiatives. New printer cartridges are expensive, both in terms of price and in terms of the environmental cost because manufacturing ink and laser toner cartridges
consume a great deal of oil.

Although 97% of the materials that make up a printer toner cartridge are recyclable, the majority of used cartridges end up in landfills. In 2018, First Phase Data helped its customers recycle 6.73 tons of used toner cartridges.

Sustainability and Recycling Partnership

As a team-oriented company, we are always looking to partner with organizations that can enhance our sustainability initiatives. One of our most valued partnerships is with Clover Imaging’s Print ReLeaf program.

Print ReLeaf’s premise is simple. It tracks print usage and automatically calculates how many trees its members consume. Then, it contributes to reforestation projects equal to that number of trees, creating jobs in local economies while helping to fight global deforestation.

Using PrintReleaf, our customers are helping to reforest their
paper consumption by planting trees with every print.
