How Vancouver Printer Company Goes Green

Printers are one of the essential office equipment. If you run a home or commercial office within the Vancouver area, having a quality and efficient printer allows you to get copies of documents in hard and digital format.

What this means is that every printer thrown away adds to the already alarming pileup of garbage that’s polluting land and water resources. Burning doesn’t help since it releases harmful gases into the environment.
