Just a personal observation, but I think it's ironic that Canon is always receiving environmental awards and no one in the environmental lobby ever notices that Canon's printer rebate policy is wasting huge amounts of energy and resources manufacturing printers, most of which are destined to go to landfills.

To explain: the standard procedure these days is:

  • Buy the camera/lens/printer bundle
  • Send in the rebate
  • Pull the ink and printer head out of the box
  • Sell the ink and printer head on eBay
  • Throw away the printer
  • Start all over again with the next rebate cycle
