Re-use paper that has been printed on one side. Inkjet and laser printers can easily accept used paper, so you can print on the unused side, or keep discarded pages for jotting notes.
Recycle ink and toner cartridges, this helps reduce environmental pollution caused by dumped cartridges.
Reduce paper waste by going paperless wherever possible. For example, get your utility bills emailed to you instead of posted.
Consider using ink saving software. Some of these programs can be downloaded for free online and generally work by optimising printer data so that your printer uses less ink even while printing at high resolution.
In the UK we throw away 55 million printer cartridges every year. Try using re-cycled cartridges and make sure you send your old ones for recycling.
