Go Green with LMI

Remanufacturing toners keeps more than 42,000 tons of plastic, metal and toner out of the waste stream. For every cartridge that is remanufactured, a “core” or spent cartridge is reused. Each core is made of approximately two and a half pounds of plastic, and without remanufacturing, that core would end up going into the waste stream. The plastic used in a typical cartridge is industrial-grade and does not begin to degrade for at least 10 centuries, or 1,000 years.

LMI Brand Imaging Supplies are environmentally friendly. LMI conserves nature's resources by reusing non-wearing plastic shells and metal components from spent OEM cartridges. LMI is proud to manufacture more than 80,000 environmentally conscious toner cartridges every month in addition to providing recycling services for your spent and surplus imaging supplies. Help us preserve our environment for generations to come. Please reduce, reuse and recycle.

All Remanufactured Laser Toner Cartridges listed on this page contain a minimum 45% of post-consumer recycled content. Post-consumer recycled content are components of a toner cartridge successfully recovered for reuse.

Through diligent collection and processing, recycled toner cartridges are given a second life as remanufactured cartridges for compliant reuse. All LMI Remanufactured Toner Cartridges are guaranteed to perform as well as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer -- NEW) Toner Cartridge.

Estimates claim as many as 160 million all-in-one toner cartridges (toner, developer and photo-conductor drum unit, all combined in one plastic shell) are bought annually in the U.S.- 500 million per year worldwide.

Add another 900 million inkjet cartridges and you begin to realize the staggering amount of waste generated from cartridges that don't get recycled ethically.

Using Remanufactured Toner Cartridges benefits all of us:

 Substantial fossil fuel and energy savings (generally, 95% of the energy used to make OEM cartridges)
• Reduction in pollution associated with extraction of virgin resources
• Each remanufactured cartridge lifecycle saves as much as one pint of oil
• Reduction in pollution associated with manufacturing new, OEM products
• Reduction in landfill-destined waste

Your purchase of remanufactured laser toner cartridges has long-lasting ecological value, helping create a world in ecological balance. Supplying only environmentally responsible remanufactured toner cartridges and other office supplies is LMI’s way of creating a sustainable world for future generations.
