TonerCycle/InkCycle announced a new partnership with the MPS company.
The Kansas-based company has signed up as a channel partner of the PrintReleaf Exchange (PRX), reported American Printer. PRX measures use of paper by automatically sending “device and fleet data” from printers to the company, allowing end-users to “help neutralise paper waste, improve efficiency and certifiably participate in sustaining our global forests”.
New trees are planted “equivalent to [customer] paper use”, through integration with Global Forest Watch, and heat map technology can show “forest loss and gains” worldwide, with areas “that most need reforestation” highlighted”. After selecting where they want their paper releafed, customers can use their online portal to track the evolution, growth, and survival of their trees over an approximate eight-year time frame for each tree.
Other aftermarket companies working with PrintReleaf include Clover’s West Point Products and ECi. Since the launch of PrintReleaf, the company has measured over 635 million pages and releafed over 75,000 trees
Brad Roderick, TonerCycle/InkCycle’s Executive Vice President, commented: “With over two decades of leadership in environmental sustainability within the aftermarket print cartridge space, we continue to look for ways to deliver greater value to our reseller community, their customers and the environment. Our attraction to partnering with PrintReleaf was the transparency and validity of their claims as verified by a worldwide third-party auditing organisation.”
