Bio-toners have been developed as an alternative to the current toners that are in your printer cartridges. The use of bio–toner in your printer is just like a regular toner, but it is made from a substance that is safe for the planet. Some bio-toners are made from palm oil and others from soy-based products that are a renewal energy source.
Currently, the demand for bio-toners is not sufficient to be economically viable, and this is preventing the use of it in your printer cartridges. There are also some that argue that the deforestation of regular trees in favor of palm trees is not helping the environment because it places a risk on the fauna like orangutans.
