Refilling ink in pens - is this taking recycling too far? LOL
OK, I guess my secret about loving Pilot G2 pens is coming out.
When I bought them I scanned the package and it said refillable... sounded good. Never got around to actually doing that.
And now I am getting around to it. But it looks like "refilling' means buying the cartridges that fit inside. That wasn't exactly my idea of "refillable"
But I noticed that the cartridges have a small cap that is easily removable. And I am wondering if I could add ink into the cartridge?
But what kind of ink? And uh, how? Like what kind of mess? LOL
I'm thinking even a few ounces of ink would basically have my pens last forever... I know this may be taking the whole reduce, reuse, recycle thing too far. But the pens are still basically good.
An acquaintance that worked for Bic told me that once they made a pen that would write for a mile. They stopped doing it because it cut down on sales.
Have you ever done this? Any recommendations?
Yup, quite a collection (and there are a lot more!)
