People hoping to reduce their ink cartridge use at home by being more efficient with their printing may find that there are a number of systems that can help them achieve their goal.

According to PC World, systems such as Green Print can prove particularly effective at helping people cut down on the amount of paper that is wasted through unnecessary printing.

The system allows people to preview print jobs and then make amends, such as cutting out blank pages or those with only images, so that fewer pages need to be printed.

Home users may also be able to boost their own sustainability by investing in the most efficient printer for their needs. Newer models with internationally recognised energy approvals can be among the most efficient, which may help people to achieve their own sustainability goals.

Besides this, remembering to recycle can boost overall sustainability, as the total number of used ink cartridges being sent to waste will be cut down, with some parts being able to be reused.
