News: HP will use recycled plastic in its inkjet cartridges

This is not an official "live from Lyra" post, but in the interest of being timely, HP (NYSE HPQ) has officially announced a printer-related "green" initiative (as of 12:01 am EST on January 30, 2008) that's brilliant in its simplicity, though no doubt anything but simple in its implementation.

USA Today's Michelle Kessler has a piece I'll refer to for now, but I will be blogging live tomorrow (Wednesday 1/30) with details as provided by HP's Michael Hoffmann as part of his Lyra Symposium presentation on HP's use of recycled plastics in its inkjet cartridges.
