In the face of climate change and the growing environmental awareness of business, we all have a responsibility to help our planet.
Office life can be a significant environmental strain as large amounts of energy are used for heating, keeping lights on, powering appliances and so on.
So, if you want to help your business be a little more environmentally conscious, there are a few steps you can take – some of which you may have never considered before.
Printing remains a key part of most of us’s daily business lives, as even with the ubiquity of mobile devices, it’s often a good idea to have a physical piece of paper in your hand with all the information you need.
However, the printing industry has not exactly been a model of eco-friendliness, with high demand for paper, chemical inks, and low-yield ink cartridges. Sustainable production, harmless inks, and widespread paper recycling have certainly provided green improvements to the technology, but the humble office printer still has a few eco-friendly tricks up its sleeve.
Epson has long been one of the most innovative players in the printing industry, continuously investing in solutions that help both businesses and consumers save energy, costs and supplies.
This global manufacturer’s EcoTank offering is an important benchmark for sustainable business printing, providing an eco-friendly proposition that is affordable and hassle-free to run, energy efficient, while offering high-quality output when needed.
Available to both small and large businesses, Epson EcoTank printers use heat-free inkjet printing technology that generates minimal energy and lower CO2 emissions compared to traditional laser printers.
Choosing Epson EcoTank
Epson’s business offering includes the EcoTank ET-5800, an A4 4-in-1 (print, scan, copy and fax) device that can print up to 7,500 pages in black and 6,000 pages in color with a single set of inks, offers a 500-page capacity sheets and a first page out time of just 5.5 seconds. Users can get the most out of this device with the user-friendly 10.9cm LCD touch screen interface, enjoy fast printing speeds of up to 25ppm and scan speeds of up to 27.5ipm, meaning that you don’t have to wait for your work.
Unlike traditional ink cartridges, which can often be frustrating to procure and replace – especially when you need to print urgently – EcoTank printers feature large ink tanks that are refilled with the included ink bottles. It is thanks to this innovative technology from Epson that users can enjoy an extremely low cost per page, and the bottles are easier to recycle than conventional cartridges.
You can even free yourself from your desktop with Epson iPrint, which lets you print from mobile phones, tablets and laptops via Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct.
Make the right connection
Sustainability should not be a trade-off on costs, as companies of all sizes, apart from the climate crisis, face many financial problems. But if your business chooses an Epson EcoTank printer, you can rest assured that you are advocating technology that is designed with the best interests of the customer and the environment in mind.
