Reusing is the next generation beyond recycling. Recycling often results in high energy costs to melt plastic and metal that is avoided by reusing. Cartridge World's customers, by resuing their cartridges with Cartridge World refills, are saving the planet thousands of gallons of oil per month and preventing our landfills from filling up with printer cartridges (over 500 per minute are thrown out in the U.S.) that take over 400 years to decompose.
As a solar energy company, environmental concern is of great importance to Standard Solar. Since our founding in 2004, we have installed over 750 solar electric systems including a 701 kilowatt array in Rockville; the second largest in the state of Maryland.
We have a comprehensive recycling program in our Rockville headquarters and we frequently engage in speaking opportunities around the area to educate our neighbors of the benefit and importance of green living.
