With environmental friendliness becoming more and more important for consumers, on October 24th, HP Inc. launched what it’s calling the “world’s most sustainable home printing system” (compared to the majority of in-class A4 home color and mono inkjet cartridge and ink-tank printers and All-in-Ones under $430).
The Tango Terra is based on HP’s Tango home printer and All-in-One, both with available voice activation, but also features:
- Net carbon neutral printing: Tango Terra is the first HP product certified as CarbonNeutral in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol by providing financing to support the conservation of an area of the Amazon rain forest in Peru.
- The Tango Terra and HP Instant Ink cartridges are made with recycled content, including ocean-bound plastics: the Tango Terra is made with more than 30-percent recycled content by weight of plastic, while HP XL64 ink cartridges are made with 48 to 73 percent recycled plastic.
- HP provides recycling of old printers and HP cartridges through HP Planet Partners, to keep these items from landfills
- HP EcoFFICIENT FSC-certified paper is said to help stop deforestation and protect wildlife.
Instant Ink Program
HP also says customers can reduce plastic waste and save up to 50 percent on ink costs with the HP Instant Ink subscription-based service, under which enrolled customers automatically receive lower-priced ink cartridges when their printer’s ink supply is running low. And, when customers enroll in HP Instant Ink, HP provides a recycling envelope for returning depleted cartridges to HP for recycling.
Same Features as the Original HP Tango
As noted, the Terra Tango is based on HP’s Tango printer and All-in-One, which feature available voice activation, the HP Smart App for mobile printing and scanning, and more. See a full list of Tango features here.
