Do you know where your printer toner cartridges come from? And more importantly, do you know why you should care?

While countless companies are improving their carbon footprints on the world, we are also faced with a time where there has been a lack of thought given to the impact that illegally-cloned printer cartridges have on the environment and supply chain.
