I hope that the latest strategy at HP will act as an example for the rest of transnational corporations.

HP is not the only one implementing such products. A lot of manufacturers are aiming to provide recyclable materials in their products in large percentage, as many buyers start to give more attention to the Global Warming problem and its possible solutions.

besides, recycled material will carry less expenses than the common one, am I right?

No, at this stage recycling is more difficult and expensive than the process of manufacturing a new product.

This industry is young and will progress in the future

hmmmmm, interesting, how it comes then that this printer is available for $50?

It might be a promotion. When the sales rise, the price for this printer will certainly go up.

It looks to me that this is not a temporary promotion, they are just making a good look for the consumer of being ecological. Nut I’m sure they catch up with the profits from other sales.

you are right Confuseduper
many companies do the same for creating a good image. Other products' prices certainly recover the expenses.

HP probably expects subventions from the state. Governments usually help such companies by offering subventions or exempting from taxes.

YES, this is very probably so. But you can't blame them. In fact I wish there would be more companies following HP's steps.

I agree, the business of untraditional energy sources is now becoming quite popular. But why not? You kill two rabbits - help the environment and make profit Confuseduper

Car producers should now think about producing cars made of wastes. It will be very cheap. But the point is that they have to make the car reliable, which is quite difficult to do of such materials.

I have two HP printers in my home and one at my office...

At least the HP is moving in the right path and contribute to the green now!

Canon has joined the ecological family. It announced printers that will consume very little energy. That would be 3 watts in standby regime and only 20 while printing.
