Here at FP we like to think outside of the box, and while doing so that got us thinking about what we could do with the boxes we send. Each year FP Mailing Solutions distributes over 150,000 ink cartridges to customers. As we continue to grow as a business that number continues to climb, and with global climate change on everyone’s minds these days we felt we needed to do our part to recycle whenever possible. Which is why we decided to begin collecting and recycling our customers used postage meter ink cartridge boxes.
We launched our cartridge return and recycling program in the fall of 2017 not knowing what to expect of the return rate. Much to our surprise, within 5 short months we had already collected over 7,400 cartridges for recycling. Given the success of this program, we are working hard to roll out this program to our major accounts and to our dealer customers in the near future.
