Ink Reclaiming Program Salvages Hazardous Waste

Ft. Myers, FL - Waste ink destined for solid hazardous waste disposal in accordance with the Department of Environmental Protection is being reclaimed for use in an environmental textile printing project.

Planet Ink Project Manager, Shari Shifrin outlined "a proprietary reclaiming method on waste plastisol ink for screenprinting on recycled fiber textiles."

According to Shifrin, garments consisting of reclaimed cotton and post-consumer polyester (PET) "are gaining popularity. The printing project was developed to complete the recycling loop - products composed of and printed with what would normally be considered garbage...remnants and solid hazardous waste."

Planet Ink is a printing company focused on environmentally sustainable solutions for the textile printing industry while maintaining social responsibility. A patented organic water based textile ink line manufactured by Planet Ink compliments the reclaimed ink product line.
