Ninestar started out as a remanufacturer of printer cartridges more than 20 years ago in 2000. Despite the continuing growth in demand for new-built products, remanufacturing continues to be a significant business. For this reason, Ninestar’s G&G brand launched its premium “GOING GREEN” recycling program in the USA and Europe in 2019. Built on this success, it expanded the program into China in 2021.
The G&G GOING GREEN recycling program encourages end-users in Europe, the USA and China to return their used cartridges for recycling using a convenient, free mail-back service. Every returned cartridge is carefully sorted and spotlessly cleaned under rigorous standards before being reused and remanufactured. Any broken, unrepairable, or unusable cartridges are sent to accredited recycling programs.
G&G wants to end the cycle of wasting cartridges by giving them a new life which saves resources and minimizes waste. To this end, G&G continues to make great progress on its eco-friendly report card.
Remarkable results were achieved in 2021 revealing 230,218 cartridges were collected and recycled in Europe and the USA and the utilization of empties ups to 80%.

"Reducing the carbon footprint is extremely vital to everyone,” said Eric Zhang, the General Manager of Ninestar Image. “We pride ourselves on reusing and recycling every cartridge to its maximum potential, which is beneficial to the environment. G&G will continue to heavily promote its recycling program and call on more end-users to join in this Green Action to care for our planet—not just on Reman Day but every day."
