Need proof that alternatives to petroleum ink really exist? Tell your office manager to think soy-based ink. It’ll still get your message on paper without you having to mull too hard over the eco-effects of printing.

The Benefits: 

  • Minding the environment. Using one soy-based cartridge conserves up to a pound of oil.
  • Philosophizing more clearly. Soy-based inks emit fewer headache-inducing VOCs (air pollutants) than run-of-the-mill, oil-based inks.
  • Knowing the difference. Soy ink tends to offer brighter colors, and although your office will shell out a little more (depending on its printer), it goes farther than its petroleum counterparts.
