Lousy Ink: 100% recycled artist ink

Artist Ink / 100ml or 300ml


SKU: N/A Category:



Lousy Ink is the world’s first 100% recycled ink.  It is sourced from a local plastics recycling company where all of your old inkjet printer cartridges end up – these cartridges are crushed for recycling, and the runoff ink is drained and stored away. Lousy then give the forgotten ink a second chance by upcycling what would otherwise become landfill or burned as chemical waste – in turning reducing waste, creating opportunity and encouraging creativity.

DISCLAIMER: Lousy recommends using the ink in a well ventilated area. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth, and avoid consumption. Due to the sporadic nature of Lousy Ink and the process of recycling, our ink is never truly consistent. Each bottle contains a unique mix and solution of recycled material.

Need some recycled paper for your recycled ink? We also sell Dodgy Paper, made from our fine art offcuts.
