G Rating:


Fuji Xerox has come up with a novel solution to keeping printer cartridges out of landfill - they've ditched the plastic, leaving a block of solid ink.

For every 100,000 pages of printing, standard laser printers produce 71 kg of plastic waste compared to 2 kg from the solid ink system.

The Phaser 8560 printer, which uses the ink, retails for $2,194.50 and six-pack of Colour Stix print cartridges, $104.50, should last for about 6,800 pages of printing.
