HP ink cartridges are among the most popularly used in printers around the world, and the hardware company is showing its commitment to making those disposable printer pieces as sustainable as possible. A new initiative started by HP will see the company's ink cartridges supply chain beginning in Haiti with locals collecting and recycling spent plastic bottles.
Haiti was one of the poorest countries in the world even before it was hit by the catastrophic earthquake in 2010. The quake destroyed the paucity of infrastructure that the small island nation had, leaving it in social and economic shambles from which it has still not recovered. By employing Haitians to collect and recycle bottles, HP ink cartridges will not only support sustainability, but they will also provide much-needed employment in the country.
