Copiers Refurbished Discusses the Environmental Impact of Buying Refurbished Copiers

December 20, 2012—Long Prairie, MN—Copiers Refurbished is dedicated to providing customers with high quality copy machines at low prices. The company is also dedicated to preserving the environment, and emphasizes the environmental benefits of buying refurbished copiers.

First and foremost, purchasing a refurbished copy machine means that the raw materials are being preserved. The volume plastics and metals and various chemicals used to assemble a copy machine is decreased every time a refurbished copy machine is purchased.  This also prevents the manufacturing costs from rising, and preserves natural resources as well by eliminating the manufacturing process.

Another reason to buy refurbished copy machines is to keep the used machines out of landfills. The chemicals in the plastics of the body of the machine, as well as the chemicals in the ink and toner, are chemicals that take hundreds of years to disintegrate in a landfill. This prevents more pollution in the soil, air, and water.

Refurbished copiers will also usually feature a power save or sleep feature. This feature can help reduce energy costs by reducing the power usage during dormant periods. The “Energy Star” logo is a great way to tell whether or not a refurbished copier has a power save or sleep mode. Energy start qualified products will help consumers use less energy, save money, and help protect the environment.

Buying ink and toner cartridges that have been refilled and reused are also wonderful options to help reduce the impact on the environment. This also reduces the amount of raw materials used to make the cartridges, as well as keeping the chemicals in the ink and toner out of the landfills upon discarding.
