Eco Solutions for everyday printing

The new ENERGY STAR® qualified HP Photosmart printers offer paper-saving features such as automatic two-sided printing(3) and HP Smart Web Printing. Reducing paper usage by up to 45 percent,(4) HP Smart Web Printing allows users to select, store and organize text and graphics from multiple web pages, and then edit and print exactly what they see on the screen.

HP also is launching the HP Deskjet D2600 Printer Series, an affordable, easy-to-use, energy-efficient solution made from 50 percent recycled plastic. Starting at $49,(1) the printer delivers reliable prints for everyday projects and is great for first-time printer owners, families needing an additional printer and college students.

Additionally, as an integral component of its solutions, HP has tested and confirmed the recyclability of HP Everyday Photo Paper.(5) Through extensive testing, the paper has been confirmed by the Forest Stewardship Council as chain-of-custody certified, indicating that the source materials for the paper have come from well-managed forests.

HP plans to continue offering high-quality affordable printing solutions that are environmentally responsible by ensuring all HP photo papers are sourced from certified paper by 2010.
