Same price - new size! 'Green marketing' cons
We were so pleased when we discovered that we could re-fill our ink cartridges for our Brother printer - no more wasted chunks of plastic (or at least a lot less), much cheaper, and of course better for this maltreated spherical rock we all cling to.
So having lulled us all into feeling we were making some teeny weeny pathetic gesture of environmental goodness, Brother then decide to keep the same price of the product but reduce the quantity of ink by 50% . . .
More plastic, more expense and a rather sad feeling of being taken for a eco-ride:
'Oh . . . so these massive companies don't actually really care at all,'
