Online Printer Ink Retailer, 4inkjets, Continues Strong Environmental Push With New Green Facility

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - Ewire -- Following a remarkable year in 2011, LD Products, d/b/a began 2012 by moving into a new, state-of-the-art, and energy efficient facility in Long Beach, California. The 110,000 square foot building houses the corporate offices, retail store, and warehouse of the printer ink merchant. is one of the premier online destinations for printing supplies including new brand name products like HP printer ink cartridges. However, with the company's focus on providing high-quality compatible ink and toner cartridges using recycled materials, 4inkjets is making conservation of resources a central piece of their business model. The new company headquarters was built to LEED Platinum certification standards to ensure efficient use of water and energy while creating a healthy and comfortable environment. Utilizing reclaimed water, solar panels, and motion-activated lighting in the 6 month construction project, 4inkjets is one of the companies leading the way in environmentally-friendly business.

That focus on effective use of resources had been at the forefront of the 4inkjets' business policy even before the new building became a reality. According to CEO Aaron Leon, "Each time that a customer chooses to use one of the company's remanufactured printer ink options, an estimated average of 2-3 oz. of oil is saved." Similarly, the typical remanufactured ink cartridge that is sold saves about 2 1/2 lbs. of plastic when compared to purchasing the average new HP ink cartridge. These savings are not only measured in natural resources, but are also reflected in the cost of the products themselves. 4inkjets boasts up to a 76% savings compared to original manufacturer prices when purchasing their remanufactured and compatible printer ink cartridges.

4inkjets' new LEED Platinum-designed headquarters in the Douglas Park business community of Long Beach is a fitting representation of the business model that has brought the organization success. Platinum status is the highest ranking given by the US Green Building Council which determines the guidelines for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). By designing the new building according to these standards, 4inkjets makes a positive environmental impact, creates a healthier workspace for its employees, and lowers the long-term cost of upgrades and maintenance on its facilities. Those savings are passed on to the many customers that shop with for paper, copier toner, and printer ink every day.
