Lousy Ink


Ships in 7-14 days

Ever wondered what happens to all those old printer cartridges you have so dutifully recycled?

Plastic cartridges are usually crushed for recycling, meaning that the remaining ink becomes runoff - and is usually headed for landfill or even to be burned as chemical waste! The team at Lousy thought that this wasn't good enough and are giving both the plastics and ink of your old cartridges new life in their range of high end ink and refillable fine-liner pens. Made by artists, for artists!

Made in Melbourne, this 100% recycled ink is sourced from a local plastics recycling company and reprocessed to make a fine-art-quality product suitable for drawing, writing, stamp-work or painting - depending on your medium! Even better, Lousy Ink is water-based and touch-dry within seconds. With a practical glass dropper, and beautiful monochrome design, Lousy Ink will almost certainly find a pride of place on your work table. 

Material(s): 100 percent post-consumer waste black ink, glass bottle and eye-dropper, recycled cardboard packaging. 

Size(ml): two sizes: 50 or 100


*Disclaimer: Use in a well-ventilated area, and avoid contact with the eyes and mouth. Due to the ink being recycled, ink can vary slightly between bottles. Each bottle contains a unique solution of recycled, non-toxic, water-based ink.
