Minimize ecological footprint with cartridges without CO2 emissions

The inkjet cartridges that you have collected with us return as remanufactured, carbon neutral cartridges under the RecycleClub ink brand! In our production video you can see how this is done! On this page we are very happy to tell you more about the cartridges that you made possible!

RecycleClub extends the life of ink cartridges. And now we want to do even more for the climate. Our logistics and production processes inevitably leave a mark on our CO2 emissions. That’s why we are constantly looking for ways to limit the resulting climate damage. We would be glad to show you how we approach this.


Environmentally conscious business practices

In Europe, for example, we have decided to work with a central distribution center. This way we limit the number of transport shipments. Another example is the rinse water that we use to clean collected cartridges. Before this water leaves the factory, an extensive after-treatment takes place.


Sustainable partners

In addition to our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment ourselves, we also work closely with sustainable partners. For example, our partnership with Fair Climate Fund, part of Cordaid, gives us a fair way to offset CO2 emissions released during the remanufacturing and logistics of our cartridges. This is achieved through Fairtrade® Gold Standard® carbon credits, the only carbon credits that meet the strict requirements that Fairtrade is known for.


Fair carbon credits

Even if we do our very best: in this industry it’s impossible to be emission-free. That’s why we want to compensate for our emissions. By buying carbon credits, Recoll finances Fairtrade projects that capture CO2. This is how we make the refilled cartridges of our RecycleClub brand 100% sustainable. Because the number of carbon credits that Recoll buys for cartridges from RecycleClub exactly matches the CO2 emissions released in the production process. That makes our cartridges CO2 neutral.

We believe it is important that our positive impact is greater than just CO2 compensation. That is why we’ve chosen the Fair Climate Fund as a sustainable partner. Because the Fair Climate Fund encourages local farming communities not only to capture CO2 from the air with their activities, but also to protect and develop their vulnerable living environment – including against the effects of climate change. In Burkina Faso, for example, we support the Birds, Bees Business project with the purchase of Fairtrade® GoldStandard® carbon credits. This way we compensate our CO2 emissions 1:1. At the same time, this investment helps limit the consequences of climate change in the short and long term.

Fair Climate Fund applies strict conditions for its sustainable development projects. For example, every project must be sustainable, fair and transparent. These strict conditions lead to proven results. That is why at Recoll we can guarantee that RecycleClub cartridges are actually 100% CO2 neutral.

RecycleClub Ink cartridges are currently only available at Staples in Portugal and Système U, and E.Leclerc in France.
