The PrePeat RP-3100 is a par excellence eco-friendly printer designed by a Japnese company, Sanwa Newtec. It needs no toner, no ink and not even a fresh rim of papers. It’s designed with a thermal head and uses the Pet plastic papers, which can be reused 1000 times. It means that it helps reducing carbon footprint equivalent to 1000 papers, which is quite an environmental contribution. When you insert the already-printed paper into the printer, it automatically gets cleaned to allow another impression. Each Pet plastic sheet costs $35 while the PrePeat is a pain in the pocket at $5600.
