New Eco-Font Saves Ink
Double-sided documents, using recycled paper – both great ways to make printing more eco-friendly, but neither is a solution to the millions of leaky ink cartridges piling up in landfills each year.
Using holey cheese as its inspiration, a Dutch communications agency has invented a font designed to cut down on ink consumption.
The design minimizes ink usage by up to 20 percent, the company claims. But even with a more ink-efficient font, the cartridge will eventually run out. When it does, websites like freerecycling.com make it easy – and economical – to keep your used plastic out of the dump.
