A Bike Path made of Printer Cartridges

RECYCLE-printer-cartridgesA park in Australia known as the West MacDonell National Park recently opened its newest park attraction which is a 17 kilometer bike path made from recycled printer cartridges.

The bike path made by Australia’s National Park Service connects Alice Springs to Simpsons Gap which was constructed to attract more park visitors. The government of Australia is dedicated in developing its country while reusing materials that harm the environment. This is why recycled ink and toner cartridges, like HP toners and Epson inks, are the main objects applied in this project. The building of the bike path had an estimated cost of $330,000 that included a viewing podium at Ormiston Gorge. Repeat Plastics Australia, maker of Replas Recycled Plastics, provided the recycled materials specifically the cartridges that are usually dumped when consumed.

It is remarkable how almost all nations create ways to recycle, reuse, and reduce the wastes being disposed daily. With the different eco-friendly projects being produced, there is a great chance of regaining what the nature lost.
