The eco-friendly printing option

Schools across the country are increasingly turning their thoughts to how they can become more eco-friendly.

From turning old school pools into vegetable gardens to installing solar panels, there are a number of ways schools can look after the environment on the outside.

But how can schools transfer that good work to inside the classroom and even into the office?

The answer is to start by looking at their printing needs...

Printers have come a long way over the last few years, from a device that simply printed pages from a computer to the multifunction device of today that can also copy, scan and fax.

And now, with the introduction of the ColorQube range of multifunction printers from Fuji Xerox, schools can also take advantage of its new eco-friendly printing capability.

The ColorQube 8870 and 8900 printers use solid ink, rather than the standard ink-based cartridges and toners found in traditional printers.

Solid ink cartridges are much like large square crayons and don’t contain any physical plastic or ink. As a result, they produce 90% less waste than toner or ink cartridges from laser printers. And, because they are lighter and have less packaging than traditional cartridges, they cost less to ship out to schools.

The cartridges have the additional benefit of being able to be replaced at any time, even during printing. And, because they contain no ink or toner, there is no mess, spills or smudges.

Solid ink cartridges are also non-toxic and have none of the nasty fumes that traditional toner cartridges can emit, meaning they are safe for even the youngest students to use.

Meanwhile, tests have shown that the solid ink cartridges can print more than 16,000 pages for black and 17,000 each for cyan, magenta and yellow, saving schools both money and time.

And at a cost of just 2 cents per colour copy, the ColorQube from Fuji Xerox is one of the most cost effective printing ranges available to schools.

So for a printing solution that is kind on the pocket, as well as kind to the environment, look no further than the ColorQube from Fuji Xerox.
