End of life
The pre-filled cartridge should last about as long as a typical pen. When the ink is used up, the cartridge is disposable and sent to landfill. However, this pack of 6 replacement ink cartridges prevents about 6 disposable pens from being sent to landfill, meaning a lot less plastic waste!
The liliput and sport mini converter are made to last and be reused but at the end of life the metal can be pulled apart and recycled and the plastic will go to landfill.
