Epson Goes The Eco-Friendly Way
| by Gagan Gupta |
Epson is planning to change the packaging for its large format printer (LFP) ink cartridges from white cardboard to 100% recycled brown cardboard (kraft cardboard) and to standardize packaging specifications worldwide. The company will also change the plastic used in ink cartridge casings from gray to a natural color. These changes result from a comprehensive review of materials and specifications aimed at reducing environmental impact. Product shipments will progressively switch to the new specifications from late December.
Until now numerous types of packaging have been used for LFP ink cartridges, depending on the printer model, color specifications and target market. For example, Epson handled 30 different types of packaging for 110 ml ink cartridges used in 7-color printers (16 for Japan and 14 for overseas markets). These reforms will enable packaging to be reduced to a single type.
Features of the new packaging include:
Models to use the new packaging and natural-color ink cartridges are:
Japan: PX-9500, PX-9500S, PX-7500, PX-7500S, PX-6500, PX-6200S, PX-9000, PX-7000, PX-6000, PX-6000S, EX-7000
Overseas: Stylus Pro 9800, Stylus Pro 9400, Stylus Pro 7800, Stylus Pro 7400, Stylus Pro 4800, Stylus Pro 4400, Stylus Pro 9600, Stylus Pro 7600, Stylus Pro 4000
