VANCOUVER, July 20 /CNW/ - Xerox
Corporation (NYSE: XRX), the official document technology partner
for Blue Legacy, will climb aboard the organization's custom-made
biodiesel bus as it kicks-off its Expedition Blue Planet: North America
tour. Alexandra Cousteau, granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau, founded the Blue
Legacy organization in 2008 to engage individuals and communities in
conservation efforts and sustainable management of water resources.
Today, the Expedition bus will stop in Vancouver, BC, at the Vancouver
Aquarium from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to educate the public about the
role watersheds play in our communities. From here, the tour will trek
more than 14,500 miles in 138 days from July to November addressing the
importance of water issues and educating individuals on how they can
make a difference.
Throughout the Expedition, Blue Legacy will be using the Xerox
Phaser® 8860 multifunction printer (MFP) on the bus
and the Xerox ColorQube™
9203 MFP in their headquarters in Washington, D.C. These MFPs will
be used to solve document management challenges in a dynamic work
environment, including printing brochures, fliers and promotional
materials, permits and photo release forms. Both MFPs use solid
ink, an innovative technology that reflects Xerox's long-standing
commitment to sustainability, and aligns with Blue Legacy's mission.
"Xerox's solid ink is a step in the right direction for greener, more
sustainable printing," said Cousteau. "Using this technology on our tour
will help us achieve our communications goals while reducing the impact
on the environment."
Solid ink technology has several advantages that support Blue Legacy's
Cartridge-free technology produces less waste and reduces packaging.
Over the four-year-life printing 4000 prints per month, a comparable
cartridge-based color laser MFP generates up to 450 pounds of waste.
By comparison, the Xerox Phaser 8860 solid ink MFP produces only 23
pounds of waste.
The Xerox ColorQube 9200 Series has a 10 percent smaller carbon
footprint than a comparable laser MFP over the life cycle.
