Every Lexmark cartridge is print-tested to ensure superior quality. Instead of
recycling these test pages, we use a process designed by our supplies-packaging engineers to convert them into molded pulp cushions. Cost-effective
and practical, these packaging cushions not only provide excellent protection for
our cartridges during shipping but can also be recycled. They are made from 100
percent post-consumer Lexmark waste.
Lexmark began using the pulp cushions in 2013. In 2015 we were able to convert
550 metric tons of test pages, which save the equivalent of over 14,500 trees1.
This innovative project was recognized as a Manufacturing Leadership 100
Award winner (ML 100) in the Sustainability Category. Presented by the
Manufacturing Leadership Council, the ML100 Awards honor businesses that
shape the future of global manufacturing.
