(Toledo, OH) I had to purchase an HP replacement printer cartridge today, as my children and their incessant desire to print out every interesting item they find on the Internet drained all the ink from the cartridge.
Just as I was about to print an important, time-sensitive document, but I digress.
The point to this post is that the new cartridge came with a self-addressed, no-postage-necessary envelope with which to place the spent cartridge. I thought that this was perhaps the most brilliant innovation I have seen from the corporate world since... well... the auto beverage cupholder or something.
Anyways - even the laziest of consumers no longer has an excuse to toss the old cartridge in the trash. Just stick it in the envelope, seal, and place in the nearest mailbox.
Kudos to Hewlett-Packard!
