Canon Marketing (Philippines) Inc. (CMPI), a leading imaging company, has launched its local efforts supporting the worldwide Canon Green campaign. Dubbed as Canon GreenNation, the campaign was launched on July 8 at TGIF in Bonifacio High Street, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City with the 2010 Ms. Earth Philippines winners endorsing the campaign.


Canon GreenNation is a sustainable environmental program that focuses on the proper disposal of PIXMA and Selphy ink cartridges and toners where users can simply place their emptu printer cartridges in designated recycling bins inside Canon concept stores in malls. It aims to instill caring for the environment a part of the lifestyle of every citizen of Canon GreenNation.

While Canon ink cartridges contain no harmful chemicals, throwing them properly instills discipline and serves as an example to the younger generation.

The campaign favors the safe disposing of ink cartridges as it works better for PIXMA or Selphy printers compared to refilling them with non-Canon ink. Doing so would eventually damage printers.

Moreover, the proper disposal of used ink cartridges drastically reduces landfill to approximately 86% by separating metal, plastics, sponges and ink residues where metal and plastics are recycled.

The recycling bins are located at the Canon Showroom (McKinley Hill, Taguig), Canon Customer Care Center (Paseo De Magallanes, Makati), Canon Customer Care Center (Liberty, Mandaluyong), Canon Dzone Megamall, Canon Dzone Mall of Asia, and Canon Dzone SM North EDSA. The recycle bins will also be deployed at Canon Dzone Glorietta and Canon Dzone Trinoma before July ends.
