Plant a Forest by Recycling Cartridges

Printing has significant costs on our environment — CartridgeForest aims to recycle your cartridges, reverse your carbon footprint, and plant an entire forest of trees!

Donate for Charity

We plant a tree on your behalf with our partner charity Trees for the Future for every cartridge we receive that can be successfully refilled, and 10 trees for every unused cartridge.


ink cartridge = 1

toner cartridge = 1

unused cartridge = 10 s

Free and Easy

Printable Freepost labels for ink cartridges, and free collections or local drop-offs for toners.

Reverse Your CO2 Footprint

1 cartridge recycled saves up to 2.5kg in CO2, and 1 tree absorbs 180kg of CO2 in its lifetime on average.

Recycle Any Cartridge

Even if your cartridges aren't eligible, we'll show you other recycling options.
