In the environmental world, “closed-loop” is the new gold standard, and we’re excited to be on the forefront for the consumer electronics industry.
Now on shelves at Best Buy, the new HP ENVY Photo 6200, 7100 and 7800 are the world’s first-in-class printers made with recycled plastic from the closed-loop process – more than 10 percent by weight.1 Plastic from printers that our customers recycle at Best Buy is shredded, melted and put directly back into the manufacturing of these new printers.
The more we recycle, the more we keep out of landfills. By making the recycling process closed loop, we further reduce the environmental impact of the product by using less virgin materials. The new HP ENVY Photo 6200, 7100 and 7800 printers prove that recycled plastic is not just for buckets and benches, but can be used in high-quality electronics.
Best Buy is committed to positively impacting our world, which includes helping our customers reduce their environmental impact by recycling their old electronics. We run the most comprehensive electronics recycling program in U.S. retail. We take back almost every electronic product no matter where it was purchased in 1,400 locations.
Here’s another reason to recycle: If you bring in a printer for recycling at Best Buy, you’ll get 15 percent off a new HP inkjet printer.
